Hi

Put a compass point at one end of the segment. Draw a circle with radius the segment length.

Repeat for the other end of the segment.

The two circles meet at two points. Draw a line through these points. This is your perpendicular bisector.

Paul,

You don't need to answer my question. I already know it and I want to post attachments to show you.
