If two non-vertical lines that room in the same airplane has the exact same slope, then they are said to it is in parallel. Two parallel currently won"t ever before intersect.

You are watching: Perpendicular lines intersect to form right angles

If 2 non-vertical present in the same plane intersect in ~ a best angle then they are said to it is in perpendicular. Horizontal and also vertical lines are perpendicular come each various other i.e. The axes the the name: coordinates plane.

**Example**

Compare the steep of the perpendicular lines

The steep of the red line:

$$m_1=frac-3-22-left ( -3 ight )=frac-55=-1$$

The steep of the blue line

$$m_2=frac2-left ( -2 ight )3-left ( -1 ight )=frac44=1$$

The slopes of 2 perpendicular currently are an unfavorable reciprocals.

The product the the slopes of 2 perpendicular currently is -1 since

$$mcdot -frac1m=-1,: : where: : m_1=m: : and: : m_2=-frac1m$$

**Video lesson**

Are these two line parallel?
