Two lines of a plane are said to be parallel if they do not intersect and the perpendicular distance betweem them is always same.

parallel lines If they are not on the same plane and never intersect they are skew

Lines which are parallel. All other lines on the same plane eventually intersect.

If they are not parallel and do not intersect then they would not be in the same plane (not possible), but they would be called skew lines.

No, if the lines were in the same plane they would be parallel and never intersect

Two lines that are in the same plane and never intersect are called "Parallel," meaning that they are lines with the same slope, but not y-intersect.

If the two lines lie in the same plane, and they do not intersect, then they are parallel. If they are not in the same plane, and do not intersect, then they are called skew lines.

If they are not parallel and do not intersect then they would not be in the same plane (not possible), but they would be called skew lines.

No, if the lines were in the same plane they would be parallel and never intersect

If the 2 lines lie in the same plane, and they are not parallel, then they will intersect at some point. If the 2 lines are skew lines, then they are not in the same plane, and they will not intersect (but they are Not Parallel)

Not only must they intersect, but they must be parts of the same line.

Parallel lines. they never intersect and lie on the same plane.parallel lines
