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.

Perpendicular: No Parallel: Yes, two pairs.

I, the top and bottoms lines are parallel, but the vertical line is perpendicular to the top and bottom lines.

A square has both parallel and perpendicular symmetry. It is composed of two sets of parallel lines that meet at perpendicular angles.

No, oblique lines are neither parallel nor perpendicular

It has parallel sides, but not perpendicular.

Perpendicular is when two lines cross... Parallel is when two lines never meet.... _____________ _____________ = PARALLEL LINES If they cross they are perpendicular, if they don't, they are parallel.

No.

Parallel. Latitude and longitude are perpendicular.

Perpendicular

= parallel + perpendicular As such no, perpendicular lines do not naturally have parallel lines. However...connect the lines in the symbols below. ++ ++ And you'll have 4 perpendicular lines, and 4 parallel lines.

Parallel

No, they can't. Perpendicular and parallel are antonyms.

is parallel-apex

Not perpendicular. Parallel lines cannot be perpendicular to each other, so parallel is close to an opposite.

Yes, the opposites of a parallelogram are parallel.
