midpoint theorem
In geometry, the midpoint is the middle point of a line segment
Got it
perpendicular line
In elementary geometry, the property of being perpendicular is the relationship between two lines which meet at a right angle
Got it
right angle
In geometry and trigonometry, a right angle is an angle that bisects the angle formed by two adjacent parts of a straight line
Got it
angle
In planar geometry, an angle is the figure formed by two rays, called the sides of the angle, sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle
Got it
line segment
In geometry, a line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points, and contains every point on the line between its endpoints

transversal
In geometry, a transversal is a line that passes through two lines in the same plane at two distinct points
inscribed
In geometry, an inscribed planar shape or solid is one that is enclosed by and "fits snugly" inside another geometric shape or solid
line
The notion of line or straight line was introduced by ancient mathematicians to represent straight objects with negligible width and depth
points
In modern mathematics, a point refers usually to an element of some set called a space
protractor
A protractor is a measuring instrument, typically made of transparent plastic or glass, for measuring angles
