# CONSTRUCTION OF ANGLE BISECTOR

In this section, you will learn how to construct angle bisector.

To construct an angle bisector, you must need the following instruments.

1. Ruler

2. Compass

## Steps to Construct Angle Bisector

Step 1 :

Construct an angle of given measure at O using protractor. Step 2 :

With ‘O’ as center draw an arc of any radius to cut the rays of the angle at A and B. Step 3 :

With ‘A’ as center draw an arc of radius more than half of AB, in the interior of the given angle. Step 4 :

With ‘B’ as center draw an arc of same radius to cut the previous arc at ‘C’. Step 5 :

Join OC.

OC is the angle bisector of the given angle. This construction clearly shows how to draw the angle bisector of a given angle with compass and straightedge or ruler. The angle bisector divides the given angle into two equal parts.

For example, if we draw angle bisector for the angle 60°, the angle bisector will divide 60° in to two equal parts and each part will measure 30°.

Key Concept - Angle Bisector

The angle bisector of a given angle is the line of symmetry which divides the angle into two equal parts.

## Practice Question

Construct AOB  =  80° and draw its angle bisector.

Step 1 :

Construct AOB = 80° angle at the point ‘O’ using protractor

Step 2 :

With ‘O’ as center draw an arc of any radius to cut the rays OA and OB at the points X and Y respectively.

Step 3 :

With ‘X’ as center draw an arc of radius more than half of XY in the interior of the angle.

Step 4 :

With ‘Y’ as center draw an arc of the same radius to cut the previous arc at C. Join OC. Using the steps explained above, in the above figure, angle bisector is drawn at O.

OC is the angle bisector of the given angle 80°.

Hence, OC divides the angle 80° in to two equal parts and each part measures 40°. Apart from the stuff given in this section, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
