## Do two distinct lines intersect at a point?

If two points of a line lie in a plane, the entire line lies in the plane. It is this property which makes the plane “flat.” Two distinct lines intersect in at most one point; two distinct planes intersect in at most one line. If two coplanar lines do not intersect, they are parallel.

## Does a line have exactly one point?

Remind students that lines actually have no width. It might be necessary to talk about how lines have a constant rate of change and how if two lines have different rates of change, they will have exactly one point in common.

**Which lines are two lines that share exactly one point?**

When two lines share exactly one common point, they are called the intersecting lines.

### What does it mean if two lines are distinct?

parallel

Rachel writes, ”two distinct lines are parallel when they are both perpendicular to a third line.

### What is distinct point?

A line is an geometric object defined by two distinct points (“distinct” here means that the points aren’t in the same location). Along with these points, a line is made up of the infinitely many other points it passes through.

**What are two distinct points?**

It means that one, and only one line can pass through some given two points. There can be infinitely many pairs of parallel or perpendicular lines which can pass through a set of two distinct points. But two points (distinct) determine a unique line passing through both of them.

## Where two lines meet is called?

In geometry, a vertex (in plural form: vertices or vertexes), often denoted by letters such as , , , , is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet.

## What are distinct lines?

Two lines are said to be distinct, if they intersect at exactly one point. When two or more lines cross each other in a plane , where the lines meet each other ,they make an intersecting point.

**Are there two distinct points?**

Perpendicular. Hint: Recall the postulates / axioms of Euclid’s geometry . Infinitely many lines can pass through any given single point. Only one line can pass through two distinct points.

### How many lines is two distinct points?

So, only one line can pass through two distinct points.

### Is it true that two lines either intersect or are parallel?

Two lines must either intersect or be parallel. In a plane, two lines perpendicular to the same line are parallel. In space, two lines perpendicular to the same line are parallel. If a line is perpendicular to a line in a plane, it is perpendicular to the plane.
