In this tutorial, we learn how to bisect a line segment. First, you need to adjust your compass so the distance from the sharp part and the drawing part is the size of the line. Then, put the sharp part on one side and draw your arc with the pencil. Do this on both sides of the line so your image shows two arcs that intersect each other. Since you have these two intersecting lines, you can draw a line between these to show where the middle of the line would be. Use a ruler to draw this straig...

A good place to start when you want to learn how to find a midpoint of a line is a circle. Take the diameter of a circle, for instance if the coordinates of the starting point are (1,6) and the coordinates for the ending point are (11,6). The midpoint of a line is the exact central point where a line through these two points would meet. Now the value of y is a constant one as the line runs parallel to the x-axis, the value of x changes by 10, the half of which is 5, this is not the midpoint t...

This video shows the way to name a line segment. A line segment begins and ends with an end point. We can name a line segment by naming the two end points of the line segment. The example shown in the video shows a line segment that ends with points named 'A' and 'C'. So, we can name this line segment as segment 'AC'. This can also be named as segment 'CA'. The example shown consists of a point 'B' in between 'A' or 'B'. We cannot name the line segment as segment 'AB' or 'BA' and segment 'BC'...

First of all in the given question you have to write down the values of the total length of the line segment, PS=15. The length of the line segment, QR =3. Now you have to find the value of line segment RS. Because you know that the Q is the midpoint of the line segments PQ and QS must be equal. Therefore you can find out the length of the half of the segment using the midpoint. Subtract the value of QR from QS. Given that segment PS=15 and Q is the midpoint, you can conclude segment PQ=7.5 a...

This video shows the method to find the length of the total segment using the midpoint. Let the total line segment be PS. Let Q be the midpoint of PS. Let R be a point on the line segment QS. The first step involves the use of midpoint to find out the length of QS. We are given that QR = 1 and RS = 4.5. QS is equal to QR plus RS which is equal to 5.5. Now since Q is the midpoint of PS the total length of the segment PS is equal to twice the length of the segment QS. This is equal to 11 units....

This video tutorial is in the Education category which will show you how to evaluate a line integral along a straight line segment using the definition of the line integral. This video evaluates a line integral along a straight line segment using a parametric representation of the curve (using a vector representation of the line segment) and then integrating. A vector representation of a line that starts at r0 and ends at r1 is r(t) = (1-t)r0 + tr1 where t is greater than equal to 0 and lesse...

From Ramanujan to calculus co-creator Gottfried Leibniz, many of the world's best and brightest mathematical minds have belonged to autodidacts.

This video from Yay Math! is a geometry lesson on how to complete a proof involving segments. He draws a line segment with four points labeled A, B, C and D. The problem is as follows: Given: AC is equivalent to BD. Prove that AB is equivalent to CD. The first statement of proof is the given. Next, you need to define the congruent segments and state that they're equal in measurement. Next, break down the segments: AC=AB+BC, and BD=BC+CD. This is called segment addition postulate. The end of t...

Hate the sticky mess of slicing into a pomegranate? Of course you do, but it doesn't have to be like that. By cutting off the top and making a few precision incisions down the outside, you can crack that sucker open and knock out all of those little arils into a bowl (or, just eat them straight out of the fruit).

Professional chef Michael Symon demonstrates the knife skills he uses to make cutting citrus fruits into membrane-free segments easy.

Rene S Frivaldo the "Chefingala" shows us how to cut and display two pineapples on a platter in less than 5 minutes. The top and bottom sections of a pineapple are first chopped off. The pineapple is then halved. The center on each half is then removed by cutting out a v-shaped wedge. The skin together with the eyes are then remove. Both the pineapple halves are then sliced into sections and placed decoratively on the platter. The pineapple crown is sliced lengthwise and placed as a decorativ...

In this Illustrator CS2 video tutorial you will learn to use the line segment tools. Please note that line segments will only fill between 2 points. A line with 3 or more points is called a path. Make sure to hit "play tutorial" in the top left corner of the video to start the video. There is no sound, so you'll need to watch the pop-up directions. Use the line segment tools in Illustrator CS2.
