There are no perpendicular or parallel line segments. The letters C, O, and S have **no line segments**. Because they are unconnected, the lowercase letters I and "j" vary from all of the capital letters. That is, they are constructed from non-overlapping parts. Therefore, there are no perpendicular or parallel line segments.

Similarly, two line segments are perpendicular if and only if the lines that they are connected to are perpendicular. This is how we can see that the letter F, for example, is made **up of three line segments**, two parallel to each other and both perpendicular to the third. The latter is also called the transversal.

The term “perpendicular” is used here in **its mathematical sense**. A line segment is perpendicular to another line segment if it is parallel to it and doesn't overlap it.

In geometry, lines that are perpendicular to each other will always intersect at **a right angle**. In mathematics, these lines are called orthogonal lines or axes. The word ‘orthogonal’ comes from **the Greek words** orthos meaning "right" and gonia meaning "angle". Thus, an orthogonal pair of lines forms right angles at every point on them.

Here are some examples of pairs of lines that are not orthogonal:

A-B | C-D

Where A, B, C, and D are points on the lines respectively. These pairs of lines are called non-perpendicular or oblique.

Of course, this is not the least amount of components required to construct the letter A, but it is an accurate deconstruction and analysis. Any attempt at drawing **a "perpendicular" line segment** will prove futile due to the curve nature of most lines.

That being said, the letter A has an overall curved shape. It has a right angle where two opposite sides meet at a point, called a "right angle corner". These two sides are called "opposite" because they connect to different parts of the letter (or figure). The word "corner" comes from the same Latin root as "right", so it means "correct angle". An "angle" is the space between two lines or angles. At **each end** of the right angle is another line or angle, which makes up the entire shape of the letter A.

There are two types of angles: acute and obtuse. An "acute angle" is one that is less than 90 degrees, while an "obtuse angle" is one that is greater than 90 degrees. At the end of each side of the letter A is one acute angle and one obtuse angle. At the end of each branch of the letter A is one more acute angle.

They are always the same distance apart and go in the same direction, as we can observe. These two lines run parallel to one another. The two lines that make up the letter L are also not parallel. But we may claim they're perpendicular. They cross each other at a right angle.

Capital letters are used to identify words or names of people. So it is important that these letters be clearly seen by everyone reading **your message**. If you write something like this: "The man walked down the street with his head held high..." It would be difficult to read because there are three different types of letters being used: capital, small, and title case.

To make reading easier for those who view **your document** on a screen, keep in mind that both Microsoft Word and Adobe Reader allow you to change **the default font** used throughout the file. This will make it easier for anyone viewing the document to understand what words are being talked about here and there.
