In geometry, **bisection** is the division of something into two equal or congruent parts, usually by a line, which is then called a *bisector*. The most often considered types of bisectors are the *segment bisector* (a line that passes through the midpoint of a given segment) and the *angle bisector* (a line that passes through the apex of an angle, that divides it into two equal angles).
