Q

# Study the diagram. The line l is perpendicular to line m (a) Is CE = EG?

4. Study the diagram. The line $l$ is perpendicular to line $m$

(a) Is CE = EG?

(b) Does PE bisect CG?

(c) Identify any two line segments for which PE is the perpendicular bisector.

(d) Are these true?

(i) AC > FG

(ii) CD = GH

(iii) BC < EH.

Views

(a) CE = 5 - 3 = 2 units

EG = 7 - 5 = 2 units

Therefore CE = EG.

(b) CE = EG therefore PE bisects CG.

(c) PE is the perpendicular bisector for line segments DF and BH

(d) (i) AC = 3 - 1 = 2 units

FG = 7 - 6 = 1 unit

Therefore AC > FG

True

(ii) CD = 4 - 3 = 1 unit

GH = 8 - 7 = 1 unit

Therefore CD = GH

True

(iii) BC = 3 - 2 = 1 unit

EH = 8 - 5 = 3 units

Therefore BC < EH

True
