No. Skew lines are lines in different planes that are parallel.

Skew lines

Two or more lines that do not intersect and are not parallel.

Not necessarily. They could be skew lines, and satisfy these conditions.

Skew. * * * * * FALSE. In fact, if they are skew, they must intersect. They have to be parallel for them not to intersect.

Correct! Skew lines can never by be parallel.

No. Skew lines are lines in different planes that are parallel.

Skew lines are not parallel. Parallel lines are across from each other in some way and are exactly parallel.

No. If they are parallel, then a plane exists which both lines lie in. Skew lines can not be on the same plane.

Two lines that are not parallel and do not intersect are skew. If the non-intersecting lines are in the same plane then they are parallel.

skew lines are noncoplanar lines, which means they aren't parallel and they also don't intersect skew lines do not intersect and are not coplanar

Skew lines are lines that lie on separate planes. and do not intercept parallel lines that are sometimes on the same plane, but don't intersect

skew lines

Skew lines.

Parallel Lines or Skew Lines.

No--skew lines are nonparallel lines that still do not intersect (in three dimensions or higher).

Skew lines are noncoplanar; therefore they're not parallel & don't intersect.
