Example 2 AB is a line segment and line l is its perpendicular bisector. If a point P lies on l, show that P is equidistant from A and B Given: Line l is perpendicular to AB So, ∠ PCA = ∠ PCB = 90° & Line l bisects line AB (as it is perpendicular bisector) AC = BC To prove: PA = PB Proof: Consider Δ PCA and Δ PCB. AC = BC ∠ PCA = ∠ PCB PC = PC Δ PCA ≅ Δ PCB So, PA = PB Hence proved
