a pair of intersecting lines that are perpendicular

The only difference between perpendicular lines and intersecting lines is that perpendicular lines create a right angle at the point of intersection.

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.

perpendicualr lines form 90 degree angles and intersecting lines just insersect. perpendicular: _ l _ intersecting: x l

perpendicular lines

Some intersecting lines are perpendicular lines.Take any old pair of intersecting lines. If the angles at the intersectionhappen to be 90 degree angles, then the lines are perpendicular lines.

They are alike because they both cross each other. They are different because perpendicular lines have to be a right angle while intersecting lines can be any kind of angle.

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect each other at 90 degrees or at right angles

they both have lines crossing each other which make angles. perpendicular lines make right angles while intersecting lines make other kinds

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a right angle (90 degrees).

a pair of intersecting lines that are perpendicular

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

Non-perpendicular intersecting lines. There is no special name.

draw two intersecting lines that are not perpendicular

Perpendicular lines are a subset of intersecting lines. The only difference is that perpendicular lines intersect at an angle of 90o, whereas intersecting lines can converge at any angle.

No. If the lines are parallel they will never meet or intersect at any point. If the lines are perpendicular they do intersect, but perpendicular lines are a special case of intersecting lines. Perpendicular lines are exactly 90 degrees from each other. Intersecting lines do not haveto be perpendicular... but perpendicular lines are always intersecting.

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