Let's
take a break from angles for a while



and talk
about lines again. 


One line
is pretty boring. 











Let's
give it some company ... 











Now we
have two lines. 


These two
lines are kind of special. 


No matter
where you look on the two lines, 


they are
always the same distance apart ... 








When this
happens, we call the lines parallel. 





Parallel
lines can be really close together ... 











or really
far apart. 











They can
also go in any direction: 











The only
thing 


is the
distance between them is always the same.
