# Which way is perpendicular

## Which way does perpendicular go?

:

**going straight up or to the side at a 90 degree angle from another line or surface**.## Is perpendicular up and down?

vertical; straight up and down;

**upright**. Geometry. meeting a given line or surface at right angles.## What does a perpendicular look like?

A perpendicular is

**a straight line that makes an angle of 90**. 90^{°}with another line^{°}is also called a right angle and is marked by a little square between two perpendicular lines as shown in the figure. Here, the two lines intersect at a right angle, and hence, are said to be perpendicular to each other.## What is an example of a perpendicular line?

Perpendicular lines are two lines that intersect in such a way that they have a right angle, or a 90-degree angle, between them. … For example, perpendicular lines can be

**observed on floor tiles, on fences, on traffic signs, or on furniture**.## Is perpendicular left to right?

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect

**at a right**(90 degrees) angle.## Does perpendicular mean right angle?

90 degrees

In elementary geometry,

**two geometric objects are perpendicular if they intersect at a right angle**(90 degrees or π/2 radians). A line is said to be perpendicular to another line if the two lines intersect at a right angle.## What is perpendicular in Triangle?

The perpendicular of a triangle is

**perpendicular to the sides drawn from the opposite vertices and divides the sides into two equal parts**. The point at which all the three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle meets is called the circumcenter of a triangle.## What are perpendicular lines *?

Perpendicular lines are

**two lines that meet at a right angle**. This is usually shown with the symbol for a right angle in the corner.## Which line is perpendicular to AB?

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

**perpendicular to XY**because AB and XY intersect each other at 90°. The two lines are parallel and do not intersect each other. They can never be perpendicular to each other.## How do you find the perpendicular of a triangle?

## What are the perpendicular sides of a right triangle?

A right-angled triangle is a type of triangle that has one of its angles equal to 90 degrees. The other two angles sum up to 90 degrees. The sides

**that include the right angle**are perpendicular and the base of the triangle. The third side is called the hypotenuse, which is the longest side of all three sides.## How do you find perpendicular lines of a triangle?

In a right angle triangle, the side opposite to 90degree angle is Hypotenuse.

**Out of the remaining two sides the side touching the other angle is base ans the side opposite to that angle is perpendicular**.## How do you find the perpendicular and base?

Fixing the base and perpendicular can be difficult sometimes.

…

…

**Now, formulas for ratios are as follows:**- sine or sinθ= Perpendicular/ Hypotenuse= Opposite/Hypotenuse.
- cosine or cosθ= Base/ Hypotenuse= Adjacent/Hypotenuse.
- tangent or tanθ= Perpendicular/Base= Opposite/Adjacent.

## Can a triangle have 2 perpendicular sides?

A triangle is a geometric shape that always has three sides and three angles. …

**Only one type of triangle, the right triangle, does have two perpendicular lines**. Right triangles always contain a right angle created by two perpendicular sides.## What are the 3 sides of a right triangle?

In a right triangle, the hypotenuse is the longest side, an “opposite” side is the one across from a given angle, and an “adjacent” side is next to a given angle. We use special words to describe the sides of right triangles.

## Is this triangle right angled?

It is possible to determine if a triangle contains a right angle using Pythagoras’ theorem . If the squares of the two shorter sides add up to the square of the hypotenuse, the triangle contains a right angle.

## Is a hexagon perpendicular?

A regular hexagon has all sides equal and all angles equal. If you have a pair of perpendicular sides,

**the angle between them is 90°**. A regular hexagon has angles of 120°.## Is a trapezoid perpendicular?

Trapezoids are usually drawn with one of the parallel edges at the bottom. The parallel edges are called the bases, while the non-parallel edges are called the sides. … “Right trapezoids” have one side which is perpendicular to the bases, creating two right angles.

## Is perpendicular lines form square corners?

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at right angles to each other to form

**square corners**.## Is a rhombus perpendicular?

The

**two diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular**; that is, a rhombus is an orthodiagonal quadrilateral. Its diagonals bisect opposite angles.## Is an octagon perpendicular?

How many sets of parallel and perpendicular lines are there in a regular octagon? A regular octagon is made up of eight sides of the same length, and eight congruent angles (all of which measure 135°). … We can see that

**lines a and d are perpendicular to both e and h.**
