Neither am I....however a quick google search gave "In three-dimensional geometry, skew lines are two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel"
I dont see any in the diagram like that o.O
I'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
:/ o.o they look parallel though :/
Which 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
skew lines are two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel.
that's in 3d geometry ... an example would be the pair of lines through opposite edges for the regular tetrahedron
im confused .-.
Okay 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...
we have to think in 3-dimension for this tennis court. (ugh I never paid attention to this stuff last semester)
Q and K
Right, 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
go it thanks! :)
