Perpendicular lines ARE intersecting lines.

Perpendicular lines are not intersecting. Perpendicular means to not cross.

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

a pair of intersecting lines that are perpendicular

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.

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 not. The perpendicular bisectors of a triangle, for example, intersect at the orthocentre of the triangle. So perpendicular lines can be intersecting and conversely.

The question is baffling. They're not different. Perpendicular lines must be intersecting lines.The only lines that are not intersecting lines are parallel lines. If two lines arenot parallel, then they must intersect, and they can be perpendicular or not.

Perpendicular lines are specific kinds of intersecting lines. They both cross paths. Intersecting lines can cross paths in any way, but perpendicular lines have to cross at right angles.

Perpendicular lines have to have a 90 degree angle (four corners) and intersecting lines are just lines that intersect anywhere.

Technically,intersecting lines are perpendicular only if they are aligned in right anglesotherwise,they are just intersecting lines,NOT PERPENDICULAR.
