# Can parallel lines be line segments?

They can not be line segments on the same line, but they can both be line segments.

### What is a line and or line segment that are exactly the same distance apart?

Parallel lines or line segments. Parallel lines or line segments. Parallel lines or line segments. Parallel lines or line segments.

### What does two segments that do not intersect look like?

Line segments that do not intersect are parallel lines

### Parallel line segments are 2 line segments that are parallel. They never touch and they do not go on forever. Parallel lines do go on forever because lines go on forever. I think I'm right. Am I?

Yes, you are right. A line segment eventually ends. In fact, a segment has two endpoints. But parallel lines go on forever; they have no endpoints. Example: <---------------------------> <---------------------------> (arrows indicating they go on forever) _______ ______________ (these are parallel line segments)

### If two lines are parallel are they congruent?

First, lines and rays cannot be congruent because they do not have both end points defined. Not having an end point define means we cannot talk about their length so they can't be congruent. Line segments, however, can be congruent. Congruent line segments NEED NOT be parallel. Furthermore, if two line segments are parallel, that does not mean they are congruent since parallel line segments may not have the same length. Congruent line segments would… Read More

### What are two line line segments that are not parallel?

two line segments that are not parallel are intersecting even if they don't touch like this /l / l they are considered intersecting because you must extend it like they are lines to say they are parallel or not

### Can rays ever be parallel lines?

Rays aren't really lines, since (Euclidean) lines extend infinitely in all directions, so they can't be parallel lines. But that's to fret a bit too much over the wording. Yes, rays, just like lines and line segments, can be parallel to other rays, lines, or line segments.

### Are line segments parallel with each other?

it depends on how you place it, they can be. all a line segment is is a straight line, if you have two you can have parallel or crossing lines.

### What does parallel lines bisected by a transversal line mean?

There are three lines in the figure described. Two of the lines never meet, these are the parallel lines. The third line crosses the other lines, it is the "transversal" line. If the parallel lines are really line SEGMENTS then each can be bisected (cut into two equal lengths) This is what your description states.

### What are parellel line segments?

When 2 line segments are parallel to each other. If the lines did keep on going they would never touch each other

### Do parallel lines have to be the same length?

no ====== Different answer: A "line" as opposed to a "line segment" is infinite in length. All lines (in Euclidean geometry) are the same length whether or not they are parallel. Line segments are obviously not all the same length, whether they are part of parallel lines or not. no the just cant touch

### What is the5 kind of a basic line?

There are many geometrical lines and some of them are:- Parallel lines Perpendicular lines Intersecting lines Lines of symmetry Line segments Straight line equations Line of best fit Dotted lines Boundary lines Imaginary lines

### How many sets of parallel line segments make up a trapezoid?

A trapezoid has 1 pair of opposite parallel lines of different lengths.

### Can two line segments be both intersecting and parallel?

Not in Euclidean geometry, but in other geometries such lines are possible.

### What lines are parallelograms made out of?

Technically, lines are continuous, so parallelograms are actually composed of line segments. The line segments composing the sides of the parallelogram, come in two pairs in 2D space. Each pair is composed of two line segments that are parallel to each other, but do not occupy the same line. The two pares of line segments must all meet to then form a quadrilateral.

### How many parallel lines in a hexagon?

There are two parallel line segments in a hexagon. There are also four 90 degree angles that are perpendicular to one another.

### A quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel lines?

A quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel line segments is a parallelogram. Parallelograms include rectangles, rhombuses, and squares.

### What are two or more different lines?

Parallel lines remain equidistant apart Perpendicular lines intersect each other at right angles Transversal line creates angles when cut through parallel lines Line of best fit for coordinates of data collected in statistics Line segments have end points

### How many parallel line segments does a right angle have?

Normally none but it does have perpendicular lines that meet at right angles.

### Which lines or segments are parallel justify your answer with a theorem or postulate?

Parallel lines are parallel. Proof they have same slopes

### What letter have a parallel line segments?

Letters that have parallel line segments are H, E, F, M, and N

### If Two lines are parallel they are equal?

All lines are equal since all lines are infinetly long. If you are talking about line segments than you can quantify if they are equal by looking at the number. Two parallel lines will NEVER cross each other though

### What is a name for a pair of parallel line segments?

There is no specific name - other than what you used: "a pair of parallel line segments".

### How many pairs of parallel line segments does a stop sign have?

how many pairs of parallel line segments does a stop sigh have

### Which letters have parallel line segment?

The definition of parallel is two rays, lines, or line segments that have the same slope and will never touch. The word parallel is a good example (at least in lowercase) - examine the l's. parallel Also depends on the font you choose. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

### What polygon has at least one pair of parallel line segments?

Many polygons, such as squares, rectangles, rhombi, parallelograms, etc. have more than 1 pairs of parallel line segments. Trapezoids have only 1 pair of parallel line segments. These few shapes are just quadrilaterals, other polygons also have more than 1 pair of parallel line segments (e.g. regular hexagons, octagons, etc.). Triangles never have any parallel line segments.

### How many line segments does a circle have?

A circle doesn't have line segments. It is a curve, not made up of straight lines. A circle doesn't have line segments. It is a curve, not made up of straight lines. A circle doesn't have line segments. It is a curve, not made up of straight lines. A circle doesn't have line segments. It is a curve, not made up of straight lines.

### Where are the parallel sides of a polygon?

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.

### Why is a trapezoid not a rectangle?

A rectangle has four right angles, two parallel pairs of line segments, and the lines are perpendicular. A trapezoid has one pair of parallel angles, and the angles do not have to be right, although a trapezoid with a right angle is called a right angle trapezoid, and a trapezoid with no parallel segments is a trapezium.

### How many lines on a tennis court?

There are 10 unbroken lines - 5 horizontal (parallel to the baseline) and 5 vertical. There are 28 line segments - 14 horizontal and 14 vertical.

### What makes a parallelogram a parallelogram?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral in which each of two sets of opposite sides consists of two parallel lines (or for math purists I should say, parallel line segments).

### Does an isosceles trapezoid perpendicular line segments?

No but it does have parallel line segments of different lengths and 1 line of symmetry

### What two quadrilaterals have two sets of parallel sides?

There are more than two: A parallelogram has two sets of parallel line segments which may be of unequal length; A rectangle is a parallelogram that has line segments that meet at right angles; A rhombus has to sets of parallel line segments which are all of the same length; A square is a rhombus which has line segments meeting at right angles, or stated differently a square is a rectangle which has all line… Read More

### Can there be parallel lines in a circle?

The two points on exactly opposite sides of a circle are parallel to each other. This can be evidenced by finding the derivative/gradient at those points; if they are the same then the two line segments described by those points are parallel.

### What is the difference between perpendicular lines and perpendicular line segments?

Lines have no end (stretch on forever) Line segments start and end.

### What is a shape made up of line segments?

A shape made up of line segments is a shape with straight lines, or a polygon. for example, a square has straight lines, or is made up of line segments. A circle is not in that category because it has no straight lines, they are curved.

### What are two parallel line segments called?

Parallel line segments? Or parallels maybe. In french at least it's that way, so I'm assuming it's the same for english. :)
