Correct! Skew lines can never by be parallel.

Skew Lines. :)

skew lines

Each line can either intersect the edge which is common to the two planes at some point or be parallel to it. If the two lines intersect the edge, but at different points, then the lines are skew. If only one of the lines intersects the edge, then again the lines are skew. If neither of them intersect, then the two lines are parallel to the same edge and so they are parallel to one another so not skew.

Parallel lines would always lie in the same plane. They would need to be skew lines.

No. Skew lines are lines in different planes that are parallel.

skew lines

Skew lines are not parallel. Parallel lines are across from each other in some way and are exactly parallel.

skew

No. If they are parallel, then a plane exists which both lines lie in. Skew lines can not be on the same plane.

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.

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

Parallel lines would always lie in the same plane. They would need to be skew lines.

They're either parallel lines or skew lines.
