### What is an antonym for skew lines?

Parallel Lines - Skew lines are lines that do not intersect and
do not lie in the same plane. If two lines lie in the same plane
they they must either intersect or they are parallel.

### If two lines do not intersect must they be parallel?

If the two lines lie in the same plane, and they do not
intersect, then they are parallel. If they are not in the same
plane, and do not intersect, then they are called skew
lines.

### Will non parallel lines intersect?

If the 2 lines lie in the same plane, and they are not parallel,
then they will intersect at some point. If the 2 lines are skew
lines, then they are not in the same plane, and they will not
intersect (but they are Not Parallel)

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### Do skew lines intersect if they are in the same plane?

No, skew lines cannot be in the same plane, since they do
not have a point on common. Two lines intersect if they lie in a
common plane, and by definition, these intersecting lines are
not skew lines.

###### Asked in Fine Art

### Types of lines and their meanings?

1. Intersecting lines- are lines on the same plane that meets at
a certain point.
2. Parallel lines- are lines on the same plane that never meet or
intersect.
3. Perpendicular lines- are lines on the same place that intersects
and forms right angles.
4. Skew lines-are lines that don't lie on the same plane they also
don't intersect and not parallel.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry

### Are lines e and g perpendicular or parallel?

If two lines (which extend infinitely in each direction) lie on
the same plane but never intersect, then the lines are parallel. If
the lines somewhere intersect, they are not. And if they intersect
at right angles, they are orthogonal, or perpendicular.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry

### When two or more lines intersect at a point they are said to be?

Theorem: If two lines intersect, then exactly one plane contains
both lines. So, when two or more lines intersect at one point, they
lie exactly in the same plane. When two or more lines intersect at
one point, their point of intersection satisfies all equations of
those lines. In other words, the equations of these lines have the
same solution, which is the point of intersection.
