Skew lines never intersect. If two lines intersect, then

they are known as "intersecting lines", not skew lines.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Do lines that skew intersect?

No. Skew lines do not intersect

Are Lines that do not intersect are always skew lines?

They may also be parallel lines.

Do skew lines intersect?

SKEW LINES are neither parallel nor intersecting.

What are skew lines?

skew lines are noncoplanar lines, which means they aren't parallel and they also don't intersect skew lines do not intersect and are not coplanar

Can two skew lines intersect in exactly one point?


Two noncoplanar liner that do not intersect?

They are skew line. Skew line are two lines that do not intersect but are not parallel.Another definition is skew lines are straight lines that are not in the same plane and do not intersect.Either way, skew lines are the answer to your question since they are noncoplanar and do not intersect.

Will the perpendicular bisectors of a right triangle always intersect?

yes, because perpendicular lines always intersect. all lines intersect unless they are parallel or on separate planes (skew)

Are two lines that do not intersect skew?

Two lines that are not parallel and do not intersect are skew. If the non-intersecting lines are in the same plane then they are parallel.

Are skew lines perpendicular?

No, skew lines are not perpendicular. Perpendicular lines intersect at an angle of ninety degrees, while skew lines never intersect (think in three dimensions or higher).

If two coplanar lines do not intersect then they must be what?

Skew. * * * * * FALSE. In fact, if they are skew, they must intersect. They have to be parallel for them not to intersect.

Lines that do not intersect and are not coplanar are called?
