PERPENDICULAR

perpendicular.

Any line that is not parallel to the given lines. The transversal that contains the shortest distance between the two parallel lines, is perpendicular to them.

It is impossible for parallel lines to be perpendicular. Perpendicular lines are intersecting lines, meaning that they cross each other. Parallel lines, on the other hand, are lines that never meet, no matter how far they are extended in either direction. So intersecting lines (which includes perpendicular lines) and parallel lines are exact opposites. Parallel lines will never meet or cross; they cannot be perpendicular.

Transversal lines are not parallel and so have a gradient that is different to that of the given lines.

= parallel + perpendicular As such no, perpendicular lines do not naturally have parallel lines. However...connect the lines in the symbols below. ++ ++ And you'll have 4 perpendicular lines, and 4 parallel lines.

Lines are parallel if they are perpendicular to the same line. Since the lines m and l are parallel (given), and the line l is perpendicular to the line p (given), then the lines m and p are perpendicular (the conclusion).

Perpendicular is when two lines cross... Parallel is when two lines never meet.... _____________ _____________ = PARALLEL LINES If they cross they are perpendicular, if they don't, they are parallel.

Parallel

A rhombus has parallel lines but no perpendicular lines.

Right triangles have a set of perpendicular lines and no parallel lines.

No, perpendicular lines intersect eachother at 90 degree angles. Parallel lines never intersect. So perpendicular lines will never be parallel.

Perpendicular: No Parallel: Yes, two pairs.

A trapezoid has 2 parallel lines. It may or may not have perpendicular lines.
