Best Answer

A polygon need not have ANY perpendicular or parallel lines. For example, consider an equilateral triangle.

It can happen that two sides of a polygon, extended if necessary, meet at a point where they form a 90 degree angle. Those two lines are perpendicular.

There may be pairs of lines such that, no matter how far you extend them in either direction, they will never meet. Such lines are parallel.

A triangle cannot have parallel lines but it can have perpendicular lines. Any polygon of 4 or more sides can have sides that are perpendicular or parallel (or some of each).

perpendicular.

no perpendicular lines intersect one another to form 90 degree angles. parallel lines never intersect each other. perpendicular lines can NEVER be parallel

A rhombus has parallel lines but no perpendicular lines.

The parallel sides of a polygon are sides that are segments of parallel lines. A polygon need not have any parallel lines. A triangle, for example, is a polygon that cannot have parallel lines.

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

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

PERPENDICULAR

perpendicular.

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.
