### Are intersecting lines perpendicular or not perpendicular?

Intersecting lines may or may not be perpendicular. If the angle of intersection between two intersecting lines is 90 degrees, then the two lines are perpendicular. Otherwise, the lines are not perpendicular. For example: A | | | B ----|----- | | Here, the lines A and B are intersecting. The angle between A and B is 90 degrees. Therefore, line A and line B are perpendicular to each other.

### How are perpendicular lines and intersecting line?

Both lines intersect other lines, but the difference is a perpendicular line intersects another line at a 90 degree angle meanwhile the intersecting lines can meet at any angle

### How are perpindicular lines similar to intersecting lines?

A perpendicular line is a type of intersecting line that crosses the other line at a right angle.

### How are perpendicular lines different than intersecting?

Perpendicular lines are where a line crosses another line and forms 4 right angles on all 4 sides but a intersecting line only crosses another line
