# Line – Definition with Examples

## What Is a Line in Math?

A line is usually defined by two point. A geometrical Line  object that is straight line, infinitely thin and infinitely long.

## Types of Line:-

There are five types of line which is given below:

### 1. Horizontal Line :-

A horizontal line is a straight line that mapped from right-to-left and left-to-right. A vertical line is always perpendicular to the horizontal line. ### 2.Vertical Line :-

A vertical line is a always a straight line from top to bottom or bottom to top. Also we can  say, a line parallel to the Y-axis is called Vertical line. Let’s look at some real-life vertical line examples:

##### 1. All trees standing upright ##### 2. Legs of a table ### 3.Intersecting Lines :-

The intersecting lines share a common point.When 2 more lines cross each other in a plane are called intersecting lines. ### 4.Perpendicular Lines :-

The perpendicular Lines Two distinct line each other  90°, a right angel is the perpendicular line is a very simple process is called Perpendicular Lines. ### 5.Parallel Lines :-

Parallel Line are straight lines are two more line same plane that are to equal distance.They can be horizontal and vertical. For example zebra crossing,railway tracks. error:
