i was looking over some math notes posted in one of the stickys and i had a question about the definition of "bisect" does it mean split in two equal halves?

i.e. a rectangles diagonals bisect each other; therefore they form 4 equal line segments.

any other interesting tidbits like this I should know?

i believe bisect is used to define the parts that result if one line is crossed by another and the parts are equal.

its about two equal parts not four equal parts. we do not need to have four parts equal. if any of two equal parts are equal then one line bisects the other.
