In this tutorial, we learn how to bisect a line segment. First, you need to adjust your compass so the distance from the sharp part and the drawing part is the size of the line. Then, put the sharp part on one side and draw your arc with the pencil. Do this on both sides of the line so your image shows two arcs that intersect each other. Since you have these two intersecting lines, you can draw a line between these to show where the middle of the line would be. Use a ruler to draw this straight, then you're finished.
