3-1& 3-2 Parallel Lines & Transversals

Two co-planar lines that never intersect are called parallal lines.

Are these lines parallel?

Now you know fo’ sho’!

QUICK! LOOK AT THAT WALL !!!

NOW LOOK AT THE DOOR !!!

They represent parallel planes.

Lines that don’t intersect, and are not on the same plane are called skew lines. skew lines

A TRANSVERSAL is a line that runs across two other lines.

The different angles created have special relationships:
1 3 4 2

5 7 8
