No.

Perpendicular lines are in shape of (most of the time) a plus sign (+) and intersecting lines speak for themselves: the lines intersect with one another. They are alike becuase they both have a vertex (when two or more lines meet; the center where the two or more lines meet). They may be different becuase a perpendicular line always has four right angles (or more), when intersecting lines can have various types of angles. Or to put it, perpendicular lines are a more specific type of intersecting line. -By Izzy; 6th grade; Content is 3rd to 4th grade basic geometry

Two lines cannot be parallel and perpendicular at the same time.

NO. Line are always parallel or intersecting. They're never both at the same time.

I don't think so. When something is parallel they never touch and they always keep the same distance apart. So I don't think they can be parallel and intersecting at the same time.

No. If the lines are parallel they will never meet or intersect at any point. If the lines are perpendicular they do intersect, but perpendicular lines are a special case of intersecting lines. Perpendicular lines are exactly 90 degrees from each other. Intersecting lines do not haveto be perpendicular... but perpendicular lines are always intersecting.

no, because parallel is opposite to perpendicular

one time

Perpendicular lines intersect to form right (90 degree) angles every time.

Dropping a bullet and shooting a bullet at the same time. They will touch the ground at the same time because they are perpendicular vectors.

When there is no ordered n-tuple (pair, triplet, quartet - depending on the number of dimensions) that satisfies both equations at the same time. In graph form, it is when the straight lines representing the two equations are non-intersecting. In 2 dimensions non-intersection implies that the lines are parallel.

Whenever two lines intersect, vertical angles refers to the angles opposite each other
