Proving The Perpendicular Bisector Theorem by Reflection

In the last two posts, we have discussed the properties of reflection and formalized our learning by enumerating the Reflection Postulate. In this post, we use the Reflection Postulate to prove the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem. The theorem states that given a segment, its perpendicular bisector, and a point on the perpendicular bisector, the endpoints of […]

The Reflection Postulate

Almost a week ago, we have discussed about some properties of reflection. We have learned that the pre-image of a figure is congruent to its image. We have also observed that the pre-image and image mirror each other. We also say that the preimage and image are symmetric. In this post, we learn formally the […]
