# Can perpendicular lines be parallel lines?

It is impossible for parallel lines to be perpendicular. Perpendicular lines are intersecting lines, meaning that they cross each other. Parallel lines, on the other hand, are lines that never meet, no matter how far they are extended in either direction. So intersecting lines (which includes perpendicular lines) and parallel lines are exact opposites. Parallel lines will never meet or cross; they cannot be perpendicular.

no perpendicular lines intersect one another to form 90 degree angles. parallel lines never intersect each other.

perpendicular lines can NEVER be parallel

No, never. Perpendicular lines cross each other at right angles. To be parallel two lines must never cross each other.
