What do noncoplanar lines look like?

Two lines, in 3-dimensional space must either intersect, be parallel or be skew. In the first two cases, they are coplanar which leaves skew lines.

One way to "see" what they look like is to imagine you are standing in a cuboid room. Consider the edge where the walls on your left and the one facing you meet. Next, consider any non-vertical line of the wall to your right. [A vertical line will be parallel to the first]. These two lines will be skew. They are not parallel and also they never intersect.

It is possible.

What does noncoplanar mean?

Noncoplanar is a term in geometry referring two or more figures, lines, or points that do not all lie in the same plane.

Two noncoplanar liner that do not intersect?

They are skew line. Skew line are two lines that do not intersect but are not parallel.Another definition is skew lines are straight lines that are not in the same plane and do not intersect.Either way, skew lines are the answer to your question since they are noncoplanar and do not intersect.

Are skew lines coplanar?

Skew lines are noncoplanar; therefore they're not parallel &amp; don't intersect.

What are skew lines?

skew lines are noncoplanar lines, which means they aren't parallel and they also don't intersect skew lines do not intersect and are not coplanar

Are any two noncoplanar lines skew?

I guess they are. If they're parallel or intersecting, then they're coplanar.

What is a noncoplanar its not parallel and do not intersect?

In space with 3 or more dimensions, there are infinitely many pairs of lines that are not parallel and do not intersect.
