When two lines intersect to form a right angle they are called perpendicular.

Perpendicular

Perpendicular angles

The lines that intersect to Form A right triangle are called Perpendicular Lines; the resulting meeting point of these two lines is called the vertex of the angle.

No and yes. No, because parallel rays (if they don't share a common vertex) will never intersect and will never form any angles. Yes, because if they do have a common vertex, they would form a straight angle of 180°.

Perpendicular lines or line segments intersect to form a right or 90 degree angle.

Right Angle

When two lines intersect to form a 90o angle, they are said to be perpendicular.

No. They form an angle.

Yes. Perpendicular lines intersect to form a right or 90 degree angle. Not all intersecting lines form a right angle.

The lines are said to be 'perpendicular'.

By definition, any lines/segments that are perpendicular to each other either do, or (in the case of non-intersecting segments) would, intersect each other at right angles. A right angle being a 90* angle. Therefore, perpendicular, intersecting line segments will form 4 90* angles.

When two lines intersect to form a right angle they are called perpendicular.

A perpendicular line is formed when two lines intersect and form a 90 degree, or right, angle.

Lines that intersect but do not form a right are just called intersecting lines. Perpendicular lines DO form a right angle when they intersect.

Perpendicular lines form right angles when they intersect each other.
