Parallel (geometry)
KidzSearch Safe Wikipedia for Kids.
Parallel is a term in geometry and in everyday life that refers to a property of lines or planes. Parallel lines or planes are next to each other, but never touch each other. This means they never intersect at any point. If two lines [math]\ell_1[/math] and [math]\ell_2[/math] are parallel, then we describe this by writing [math]\ell_1 \parallel \ell_2[/math].^{[1]}^{[2]} The slopes of parallel lines are always equal.
Even if these two line segments were extended to infinity, there would never be a point of intersection between the two of them. In fact, two parallel lines in the twodimensional plane are always a fixed distance apart.^{[3]}
