No, because parallel lines will always go the same directions and never make a right angle.

### What is perpendicular an d parallel lines?

Perpendicular lines intersect at a 90 degree angle. Parallel lines do not intersect, nor would they ever intersect if continued infinitely.

### Will perpendicular lines on theplane same ever touc?

Perpendicular lines intersect each other at 90 degrees but parallel lines never touch each other

### Will perpendicular lines ever meet?

By definition, perpendicular lines are those which meet in a right angle. So, yes, they have to meet in order to be "perpendicular". Parallel lines may, or may not, meet, depending on how you choose your axioms. In Euclidean geometry, parallel lines never meet. In certain types of non-Euclidean geometry, they can meet.

### Will perpendicular lines on the same ever touch?

no because Perpendicular is a 90 degree angle and 90 degrees have no slant or anything they will always be parallel

### Are alternate exterior angles on parallel lines ever supplementary?

Only if they add up to 180 degrees which would be the case if the parallel lines are cut through by a perpendicular line.

### What is perpendicular mean in math?

It means a line that intersects with another line. Where as parallel would be a lines that do not intersect, ever.

### Does the uppercase letter L demonstrate parallel or perpendicilar lines?

Perpendicular perpendicilar Parallel means that they are next to each other without ever intersecting. Perpendicular is two lines that intersect at a 90 degree angle, like the corner of a room or the uppercase L.

### Do parallel lines ever meet?

Parallel lines never ever meet with each other

### Do parallel lines ever intersect?

No, parallel lines cannot ever intersect. The have identical slopes. Therefore, they will always remain parallel.

Yes.

### Do coplaner lines ever intersect?

if they are parallel -- no. if not parallel -- yes

### Will perpendicula lines ever touch?

Yes but parallel lines wont ever touch.
