Help!!! Given a segment with endpoints A and B, What figure can you construct using the steps below? Step 1: Put the compass point on A and draw a long arc. Be sure the opening is greater than 1/2 AB. Step 2: With the compass on the same setting, put the compass point on B and draw another long arc. Label the points where the two arcs meet as X and Y. Step 3: Draw <-> XY. Label the point intersection of - AB and <-> as M, the midpoint od -AB a. a perpendicular bisector b. a congruent segment c. an angle bisector d. a congruent angle

    A Hint: We know that M is is the midpoint of segment AB so the answer must have the word bisector in it.
