Yes. Perpendicular lines are intersecting lines, but they have right angles.

Perpendicular lines are in shape of (most of the time) a plus sign (+) and intersecting lines speak for themselves: the lines intersect with one another. They are alike becuase they both have a vertex (when two or more lines meet; the center where the two or more lines meet). They may be different becuase a perpendicular line always has four right angles (or more), when intersecting lines can have various types of angles. Or to put it, perpendicular lines are a more specific type of intersecting line. -By Izzy; 6th grade; Content is 3rd to 4th grade basic geometry

perpendicular lines are a special type of intersecting line that happen to intersect at 90 degree angles

perpendicular line

A perpendicular line is a type of intersecting line that crosses the other line at a right angle.

intersecting lines are alike because perpendicular lines have to intersect to be perpendicular. 2: They are the same because they touch another line so they are the same.

Yes. Perpendicular lines are intersecting lines, but they have right angles.

It is an intersecting line because perpendicular lines intersect at 90 degrees

Intersecting lines may or may not be perpendicular. If the angle of intersection between two intersecting lines is 90 degrees, then the two lines are perpendicular. Otherwise, the lines are not perpendicular. For example: A | | | B ----|----- | | Here, the lines A and B are intersecting. The angle between A and B is 90 degrees. Therefore, line A and line B are perpendicular to each other.

Both lines intersect other lines, but the difference is a perpendicular line intersects another line at a 90 degree angle meanwhile the intersecting lines can meet at any angle

Intersecting Lines

perpendicular line

A perpendicular line is a type of intersecting line that crosses the other line at a right angle.

They both cross paths. Intersecting lines can cross paths in any ways, but perpendicular lines have to cross at 90 degrees.

intersecting lines are going on top of each other like this: + perpendicular lines go like this: X parallel lines go like this: =
