## Do perpendicular angles form right angles?

Recall that when two lines are perpendicular, they meet to form right angles.

## Do perpendicular lines always form four right angles?

Perpendicular lines (or segments) actually form four right angles, even if only one of the right angles is marked with a box.

**Do all perpendicular lines form right angles?**

If two lines are perpendicular, they form four right angles. When two lines are perpendicular, there are four angles formed at the point of intersection. It makes no difference “where” you label the “box”, since all of the angles are right angles.

### Are all right angles congruent?

If two angles are complements of the same angle (or congruent angles), then the two angles are congruent. All right angles are congruent.

### Is perpendicular the same as a right angle?

Two distinct lines intersecting each other at 90° or a right angle are called perpendicular lines.

**Are congruent and perpendicular the same?**

Congruent angles are just angles that are equal to each other! If two lines are perpendicular, they will intersect to form four right angles. If two sides of two “adjacent acute angles” are perpendicular, the angles are therefore complementary.

#### What forms when lines are perpendicular?

Perpendicular lines are lines, segments or rays that intersect to form right angles. The symbol ⊥ means is perpendicular to . The right angle symbol in the figure indicates that the lines are perpendicular.

#### What kind of angles are formed by perpendicular lines?

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

**What lines are congruent?**

When two line segments exactly measure the same, they are known as congruent lines. For example, two line segments XY and AB have a length of 5 inches and are hence known as congruent lines. When two angles exactly measure the same, they are known as congruent angles.
