True or False and WHY?

"If a circle with its centre at the origin has a chord with slope m, the equation of the right bisector of the chord is "y=mx".
Is this statement true or false, and can you give me detailed reasons for your answer.

I have been re reading my notes and going thru my books and I can not figure this out at all.
Can someone help me on this please, and thanks for your reply.

Suppose the chord is (part of) the x-axis, which has slope zero. The right bisector of that chord is the y-axis, which has equation x = 0, not y = 0x, so the statement is false.
