A right angle has no parallel lines, but it does have perpendicular lines that meet at right angles.

An angle is formed where two lines meet. Parallel lines do not meet. Therefore they do not form an angle. So there is no angle to have a name. So no name.

No. A triangle can never have parallel lines. Parallel lines run alongside each other, so that if they continued forever, they would never meet, such as the top and bottom of a square. All lines meet in a triangle. A right triangle is distinguished by having one 90 degree angle (also known as a right angle).

Normally none but it does have perpendicular lines that meet at right angles.

Perpendicular lines meet at a right angle so a right angled triangle has two lines which are perpendicular to eachother. However there are no parallel lines in a right angled triangle, or any triangles for that matter.

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.

Two lines that meet at a right angle are called perpendicular.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called normal.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called orthogonal.

A perpendicular line is formed when two lines meet at a right angle. Opposite angles in a perpendicular line are parallel to each other.

Parallel lines do not meet and so cannot form an angle.
