As listed before, the most common shapes with perpendicular sides are squares and rectangles. Another common shape with perpendicular sides is the right triangle. It is called a right triangle because it has a right angle for one of its three angles, this is where the perpendicular sides meet.

## Which 2D shapes have perpendicular lines?

As listed before, the most common shapes with perpendicular sides are squares and rectangles. Another common shape with perpendicular sides is the right triangle. It is called a right triangle because it has a right angle for one of its three angles, this is where the perpendicular sides meet.

**What 2D shape has 4 perpendicular lines?**

square

The square is made of four lines. Because each line is perpendicular to two other lines, a square has four right angles.

**What is perpendicular in shapes?**

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a right (90 degrees) angle.

### What are some examples of perpendicular?

In real life, the following are examples of perpendicular lines:

- Football field.
- Railway track crossing.
- First aid kit.
- Construction of a house in which floor and the wall are perpendiculars.
- Television.
- Designs in windows.

**Is a square a perpendicular shape?**

Squares are made up of two sets of parallel line segments, and their four 90° angles mean that those segments also happen to be perpendicular to one another.

**What 2d shapes have parallel lines?**

Some shapes that have parallel sides include the parallelogram, the rectangle, the square, the trapezoid, the hexagon, and the octagon.

## What shape has 3 pairs of perpendicular lines?

I am a 3 sided shape. I have 3 equal sides. All my angles are equal. I have 0 parallel and 0 perpendicular sides. | equilateral triangle. |

I am a quadrilateral (4 sides). All my sides are equal. I have 4 right angles. I have 2 pairs of parallel sides. I have 4 perpendicular lines. | Square |

**What shapes always contain perpendicular sides?**

Adjacent sides of a square and a rectangle are always perpendicular to each other.

**What shapes have at least one pair of perpendicular sides?**

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with A. one pair of parallel lines. C. one pair of perpendicular lines.

### Is a Pentagon perpendicular?

A regular pentagon has no parallel or perpendicular sides, but a non-regular pentagon might have parallel and perpendicular sides. It all depends on the polygon.

**What are perpendicular sides?**

The word “perpendicular” means “at right angles” and this is because when two lines meet, they form right angles. Perpendicular lines can face in any direction such as up and down, crossways, and side-to-side. They also do not have to be standing straight up from the bottom or side of the page.

**Does a square have perpendicular lines?**

Squares (like the one below) contain 4 pairs of perpendicular lines.

## What shapes have perpendicular lines and no parallel lines?

As we mentioned before, right triangles have perpendicular sides, rectangles have both perpendicular and parallel sides, but other quadrilaterals might not. A regular pentagon has no parallel or perpendicular sides, but a non-regular pentagon might have parallel and perpendicular sides.

**What shape has 2 pairs of perpendicular sides?**

Right triangles always contain a right angle created by two perpendicular sides.

**What is draw perpendicular lines?**

Construction of Perpendicular Lines: When two lines intersect to form right angles then such lines are known as perpendicular to each other. Perpendicular lines lie in the same plane i.e. they are co-planar and intersect at right angles.

### Is used to draw perpendicular lines?

Use only a protractor and ruler to draw a perpendicular bisector on a line segment. (Remember that we use a protractor to measure angles.)

**How do you prove two lines are perpendicular?**

If the two lines intersect at a point, the vertical angles formed are congruent. The intersecting lines either form a pair of acute angles and a pair of obtuse angles, or the intersecting lines form four right angles. When the lines meet to form four right angles, the lines are perpendicular.
