if a pointis onthe perpendicular bisector of a segment,then it is:A. the midpoint of the segment,B.equidistant from the endpoints of the segment. C. on the segment. D.equidistant from the midpoint and one endpoint of the segment.

• geometry -

The perpendicular bisector is the line containing points equidistant from both ends of the line segment.

So, B

If P is your point,
it may not be the actual midpoint
it may not even be on the line AB
it is certainly not between the midpoint and one end.
