## Define Transversal Line

 Transversal Angles Properties / Facts about Transversal of parallel line

Before you understand what is Transversal, you must know:

What are Lines ?
What are Intersecting Lines ?
What is Intersection Point ?

Definition: A line which intersect two or more lines at different points is known as a Transversal

E.g. In the following diagram:

Lines X and Y are intersected by another Line P at points A and B respectively.

Or we can also say that:

Line P intersects two Lines X and Y at different points i.e. A and B respectively.

Hence, Line P is transversal to Lines X and Y.

Now, in the following diagram:

You can see that here also, Line P is intersecting Lines X and Y.

So, Can we say here also that Line P is transversal to Lines X and Y ?

No, Line P is not a transversal to Lines X and Y because it does not intersect Lines X and Y at different points.
