The corner of a room is the intersection of two adjacent walls.

In building construction, you usually have one horizontal plane (that floors) that is intersected by a vertical plane (the walls or support beams).

Well,actually,parallel line are lines that has two line segments,going on side by side without meating each other. example: _____________________________ _____________________________ But actually,the letter x is a intersecting line.You see,an intersecting line is a line cross,but making two obtuse,and acute angles.

On successful railways it has been found that parallel works the best.

The measure of the angle formed by two secants intersecting outside the circle is one-half the difference of the intercepted arcs. Example: Major intercepted arc is 200o and the minor intercepted arc is 120o. 1/2 (200-120) = 40o ... The measurement of the angle formed by the two secants is 40o. I HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU :))

Parallel means lines that are avoiding each other (in other words, they don't touch.) So the problem would have to be the way the lines are going. If the lines were intersecting (or crossing) then that would be the problem.For example: You have a problem on a paper that asks you this same question:What problem would there be in your picture if the lines were not parallel?Answer: Then your lines would be an intersecting pair.Slight definition: If your lines are not parallel, then they would have to be intersecting. Intersecting is when two lines (line segments, angles, etc.) cross on each other. For example... they might make an X by forming together in this pattern. Parallel is when your lines are NOT touching. If they are, they would be considered our P/Intersecting. Standing for "Parallel and Intersecting lines."SRW!!

They are not. The perpendicular bisectors of a triangle, for example, intersect at the orthocentre of the triangle. So perpendicular lines can be intersecting and conversely.
