 Description  
 Intersecting Lines:  Two lines that cross each other. Lines intersect at one point unless the lines fall directly on top of each other (in which case they are essentially the same line and are sometimes called coincidental).


Two distinct lines intersect if they do not have the same slope. In other words, if the slopes are same (i.e., lines are parallel), they do not intersect each other.
