Q:
# I am somewhat confused with this question, and I need explanation on what the answer is. Does anybody know and is in order to help me with it?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Β AP is not congruent to PBStep-by-step explanation:If CP were a perpendicular bisector of AB, a couple of conditions would be true:CP would be perpendicular to AB (which it is)CP would bisect AB (which it does not)If CP were to bisect AB, then point P would be the midpoint of AB, and you would have AP β
PB. Segments marked congruent in the diagram would include both AP and PB. (If CP were also perpendicular to AB, then C would be equidistant from A and B.)__The fact that CP is congruent to PB has no meaning in this context. It is only marked that way for the purpose of creating confusion.
