## Perpendicular Bisector Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the perpendicular bisector through two points.

Y-Y1 = m*(x-X1)

- Where m is the slope = (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1)
- Y2 and Y1 are the two y coordinates
- X2 and X1 are the two x coordinates

## Perpendicular Bisector Definition

A perpendicular bisector is a line that connects two points and is also perpendicular to the lines of those points.

## Perpendicular Bisector Example

How to calculate the perpendicular bisector

**First, determine the coordinate points**Measure or calculate the coordinate points in the x and y plane.

**Next, calculate the slope**Calculate the slope (m) using the formula (y2-y1)/(x2-x1).

**Finally, calculate the perpendicular bisector**Calculate the equation of the line of the perpendicular bisector using the formula above.
