### What is Meant by the Perpendicular Line?

In mathematics, the perpendicular lines are the lines in which they intersect at right angles (i.e., 90 degrees). In other words, a line is said to be a perpendicular line, when one line meets another line at 90 degrees. For example, the adjacent sides of the rectangle and square remain perpendicular to each other. In case, if two lines are perpendicular to the same line, then that two lines are parallel to each other and those lines will never intersect.
