Perpendicular Transversal:

When two Parallel Lines are cut by a Perpendicular Transversal, 8 right angles are formed.


 If two lines are Perpendicular to the same line, they are parallel to each other.


If two lines are parallel and a third line is Perpendicular to one of the parallel lines, it is Perpendicular to the other parallel line.

Distance Formula:

The distance between the two points  and  is given as

Shortest Distance between a Point and a Line:

The shortest distance between a point and a line is a Perpendicular Line Segment. The Slopes of Perpendicular Lines are Negative Reciprocals.

Distance between Two Parallel Lines on the Coordinate Plane:

The shortest distance between two Parallel Lines is the length of a Perpendicular Segment.
