### Two lines perpendicular to the same line are perpendicular to each other true or false?

TRUE:: The first two lines lie in the same plain, but are perpendicular to each other. The third line passes through the plane of the first two lines so it is also perpendicular. Think 3-dimension. !!!!!

### Can perpendicular lines also be parallel lines?

Perpendicular lines can not be parallel to each other but they can be to other lines.

### If two different lines are perpendicular to the same plane they are?

Parallel. or it can also be coplanar.. hope this helps :D its coplanar....

### What shape has parallel lines and perpendicular lines?

A square and a rectangle have perpendicular and parallel lines. The two side lines extending upwards from the base line are perpendicular to the base line. The line extending from each of the side lines across the top is perpendicular to the side lines. The top line is also parallel to the base line, and the side lines are also parallel to each other.

### Are all intersecting lines also perpendicular lines and why?

No - perpendicular lines meet at right angles.

### What shape has perpendicular and parallel?

The line extending from each of the side lines across the top is perpendicular to the side lines. The top line is also parallel to the base line, and the side lines are also parallel to each other.

### Meaning of the different kinds of lines?

They are: -skew lines -parallel lines -intersecting lines -straight lines -zigzag lines -dotted lines -solid lines -curved lines -perpendicular lines

### 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.

### Define perpendicular lines and describe the type of angle formed by perpendicular lines or line segments?

The definition of perpendicular lines also defines the angles -- perpendicular lines are two lines (or line segments) that meet at a 90 degree angle.

### If two lines are perpendicular they are also parallel?

PARALLEL AND PERPENDICULAR LINESParallel lines can run side by side on forever but perpendicular lines make a 90 degree angle.

### Is a perpendicular line also intersecting line?

Yes. But it does not mean it is fully. It partly is not. It is if both lines are in the same plane. But if they are in different planes, then they won't intersect.

### What are two lines that meet at a right angle?

Two lines that meet at a right angle are called perpendicular.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called normal.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called orthogonal.
