One, two or four right angles, depending upon whether one or both line segments continue beyond the point of intersection.

By definition, any lines/segments that are perpendicular to each other either do, or (in the case of non-intersecting segments) would, intersect each other at right angles. A right angle being a 90* angle. Therefore, perpendicular, intersecting line segments will form 4 90* angles.

Perpendicular if they form right angles if not they form vertical opposite equal angles

Can happen if tangent line is perpendicular to normal line.

It already is. If you extend the vertical and horizontal lines out farther, you'll see that it forms an intersection that is perpendicular. Forming four 90 degree angles.

Perpendicular line segments are line segments that intersect and make 90 degree angles.

Right angles of 90 degrees are created when perpendicular lines intersect each other.

Perpendicular line segments are line segments that cross with each other and form angles of 90 degrees.

Perpendicular Lines form right angles at their point of intersection

Two lines or segments that form a right angle are said to be perpendicular.

By definition, any lines/segments that are perpendicular to each other either do, or (in the case of non-intersecting segments) would, intersect each other at right angles. A right angle being a 90* angle. Therefore, perpendicular, intersecting line segments will form 4 90* angles.
