# What is parallel/perpendicular and intersecting?

## What is parallel/perpendicular and intersecting?

Parallel lines are lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart. Parallel lines never intersect. Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a right (90 degrees) angle.

Is perpendicular or parallel?

If two non-vertical lines that are in the same plane has the same slope, then they are said to be parallel. Two parallel lines won’t ever intersect. If two non-vertical lines in the same plane intersect at a right angle then they are said to be perpendicular.

What is the parallel intersecting?

Parallel lines are always the same distance apart, never cross, and do not have an endpoint in common. We use the symbol || to indicate when lines are parallel. The ten yard lines on a football field are parallel lines. Intersecting lines are lines that do cross, lines that have one point in common.

### What is line and Ray?

A line segment has two endpoints. It contains these endpoints and all the points of the line between them. You can measure the length of a segment, but not of a line. A segment is named by its two endpoints, for example, ¯AB . A ray is a part of a line that has one endpoint and goes on infinitely in only one direction.

What is the example of intersecting lines?

Crossroads: Two roads (consider as straight lines) meeting at a common point make crossroads. Scissors: The two arms of the scissors form intersecting lines.

Can intersecting lines be perpendicular?

Perpendicular – Definition with Examples Two distinct lines intersecting each other at 90° or a right angle are called perpendicular lines. Here, AB is perpendicular to XY because AB and XY intersect each other at 90°.

## What are intersecting lines examples?

Where do two perpendicular lines intersect?

In elementary geometry, two geometric objects are perpendicular if they intersect at a right angle (90 degrees or π/2 radians). A line is said to be perpendicular to another line if the two lines intersect at a right angle.

Where do two perpendicular lines intersect point segment ray or line?

right angle
When 2 lines intersect at a right angle, they are perpendicular lines. We can also say that if 2 lines are perpendicular, then their intersection forms a right angle. Sometimes in everyday language, parts of lines (rays and line segments) that meet at right angles are also called perpendicular lines.
