Yes.

### Do intersecting lines ever cross?

Intersecting lines are two lines that cross in a coordinate plane. So, yes, intersecting lines cross.

### Are vertical angles formed by two intersecting lines coplanar?

Yes. They're in the plane defined by the two intersecting lines.

### What is the locus of point equidistant from two intersecting lines?

The locus in a plane is two more intersecting lines, perpendicular to each other (and of course half-way between the given lines.

### Is intersecting lines always coplanar?

Yes. The two lines define a plane which they both belong to.

### Are vertical angles formed by two intersecting lines coplanar?

Yes. They're in the plane defined by the two intersecting lines.

### Can two intersecting lines lie in two planes?

If they are straight lines, then they define a plane in which both lines lie.

### What is the locus of point equidistant from two intersecting lines?

The locus in a plane is two more intersecting lines, perpendicular to each other (and of course half-way between the given lines.

### Does intersecting lines meet at two points?

Lines in a plane can intersect at only one point.

### Is intersecting lines always coplanar?

Yes. The two lines define a plane which they both belong to.

### 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.

### Do intersecting lines meet at two points?

Lines intersect if the meet at one point. Perpendicular lines also meet at one point, but their intersection is a right angle. Intersecting lines in the plane do not meet at two points.

### Do skew lines intersect if they are in the same plane?

No, skew lines cannot be in the same plane, since they do not have a point on common. Two lines intersect if they lie in a common plane, and by definition, these intersecting lines are not skew lines.

### What do you call the two perpendicular intersecting lines?

Orthogonal. The lines form right angles in a 2-d plane.
