**geometry**, the property of being

**perpendicular**(perpendicularity) is the relationship between two

**lines**which meet at a right angle (90 degrees). The property extends to other related

**geometric**objects. A

**line**is said to be

**perpendicular**to another

**line**if the two

**lines**intersect at a right angle.

Also to know is, what is an example of a perpendicular line?

**Perpendicular lines** are two **lines** that intersect in such a way that they have a right angle, or a 90 degree angle, between them. For **example**, **perpendicular lines** can be observed on floor tiles, on fences, on traffic signs, or on furniture. These are just a few **examples**.

Also Know, what is the symbol for perpendicular? Two lines that intersect and form right angles are called **perpendicular** lines. The **symbol** ⊥ is used to denote **perpendicular** lines. In Figure , line l ⊥ line m.

Similarly one may ask, what is a perpendicular line kids?

The **perpendicular line** is a **line** that crosses another **line** at a 90° angle. Each corner meets at a 90° angle. This is also known as a right angle. We can find even **perpendicular** angles in the corners of squares and possibly in triangles.

Are parallel lines congruent?

If two **parallel lines** are cut by a transversal, the corresponding angles are **congruent**. If two **lines** are cut by a transversal and the corresponding angles are **congruent**, the **lines are parallel**. Interior Angles on the Same Side of the Transversal: The name is a description of the "location" of the these angles.
