What is Perpendicular and Parallel?

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.

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.

What are some examples of parallel lines and a pair of perpendicular lines?

Railroad tracks or the number 11 are parallel lines. A cross or a small t are perpendicular lines. Also the two ll's in the middle of parallel are parallel lines.

Does parallel mean side by side?

Yes, parallel means that two lines do not cross but lay side-by-side. Perpendicular is the opposite of parallel and means two lines intersecting.

What is the difference between a perpendicular and parallel line?

A perpendicular line is a line that creates two 90 degree angles at the line, segment, etc. that it intersects. Parallel lines are two lines that never intersect. Perpendicular lines cross at right angles (+) Parallel lines will never meet, no matter how far they are extended (=)

Can two lines intersect and be perpendicular and parallel?

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

How do you determine if 2 lines are parallel perpendicular or neither?

Two lines are parallel if and only if they have the same slope. Two lines are perpendicular if the product of their slopes is -1. If neither of these conditions are met, the lines are nether parallel, or perpendicular.

What is a line that cuts through two different parallel lines at different points?
