### When are two lines in intersecting planes skew?

Each line can either intersect the edge which is common to the
two planes at some point or be parallel to it. If the two lines
intersect the edge, but at different points, then the lines are
skew. If only one of the lines intersects the edge, then again the
lines are skew. If neither of them intersect, then the two lines
are parallel to the same edge and so they are parallel to one
another so not skew.
