Congruent segments: segments that have the same length.
In the diagram, PQ = RS, so you can write:
PQ  RS.
“segment PQ is congruent to segment RS.”
Tick marks are used in a figure to show congruent segments.

In order for you to say that a point B is between
two points A and C, all three points must lie on the
same line, and AB + BC = AC.

1-2 Measuring and Constructing Segments
The midpoint M of AB is the point that
bisects, or divides, the segment into two
congruent segments.
If M is the midpoint of AB, then AM = MB.
So if AB = 6, then AM = 3 and MB = 3.
