Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Neither am I....however a quick google search gave "In threedimensional geometry, skew lines are two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont see any in the diagram like that o.O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure if this counts...but the fact that the top of the net cannot "physically" intersect with either lines 'k' or 'm' ...but they sure as heck aren't parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:/ o.o they look parallel though :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which look parallel? I was talking about line 'q' cannot physically intersect with line 'm' ....or line 'k' in that sense Not too sure if that counts however

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's in 3d geometry ... an example would be the pair of lines through opposite edges for the regular tetrahedron

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so here's what I'm thinking Since Line 'q' is elevated above the ground...that means that neither lines 'k' nor 'm' can physically intersect it So since they cannot intersect it, nor are they parallel to it...I would have classified lines 'q' and 'k' or 'q' and 'm' as skew lines Correct me if I'm wrong...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to think in 3dimension for this tennis court. (ugh I never paid attention to this stuff last semester)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@johnweldon1993 I think thats correct .....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right, since we are thinking about 3d...take into account that the net extends into the z axis....since it is not physically on the same plane as either of those lines they cannot intersect it
