midpoint

splits a segment into 2 segments of equal measure

segment bisector

passes through a midpont

angle bisector

splits an angle into 2 angles of eual measure

segment addition postulate

if B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC

Angle addition postulate

if D is the interior of <ABC, then m<ABD + m<DBC + m<ABC

addition property of equality

if a=b and c=d then a+c = b+d

subtraction property of equality

if a=b and c=d then a-c = b-d

Multiplication property of equality

if a=b and c=d then ac=bd

substitution property

if a=b then a can be substituded for b, in any equation or expression
