The Right Triangle. Perpendicular lines make a right angle.

It has a pair of perpendicular lines that meet at right angles to form the 90 degree angle of a right angle triangle.

A right angle triangle has a pair of perpendicular lines that meet each other at 90 degrees.

A triangle can have one angle made up of perpendicular lines. That would be called a right triangle. A triangle cannot have more than one angle made up of perpendicular lines however. To see why, remember that an angle created by two perpendicular lines is 90 degrees and a triangle is made up of three angles that sum to 180 degrees. If two angles were 90 degrees the third angle would have to be 0 degrees, in which case the shape is no longer a triangle.

No but a right angle triangle has perpendicular lines that meet at 90 degrees

When two perpendicular lines cross, a right angle is formed.

Two of the three lines in a right triangle are perpendicular. Perpendicular lines meet at a 90 degree angle (also called a right angle). All right angle triangles have one right angle.

There are no parallel lines in any triangle but a right angle triangle has perpendicular line that meet each other at 90 degrees.

Yes a right angle triangle has perpendicular lines that form 90 degrees.

A right angle triangle has a pair of perpendicular lines that meet each other at 90 degrees.

Lines that meet or intersect at right angles are perpendicular lines such as a right angle triangle and a right angle is 90 degrees.
