In this section you'll learn the concept of congruence and midpoint of line segments and explore more about it. Midpoint of a line segment is a point that divides it into two equal parts E.g. if M
divides the line segment PQ
into two equal parts; it is midpoint of this line segment.
Only a line segment can have a midpoint. A line cannot since it goes on indefinitely in both directions, and a ray cannot because it has only one end, and hence no midpoint. The congruence relates to geometric figures that have the same size and shape. For example: Two triangles are congruent, if their sides are of the same length and their internal angles are of the same measure.
