Intersecting lines cross each other. Parallel lines never cross each other - they stay the same distance apart. You can use intersecting and parallel lines to work out the angles in a triangle.

What are intersecting lines?

Lines that cross each other

Lines that never meet each other

Lines that are the same length

What are parallel lines?

Straight lines that never meet each other
