Refer to the following statement: Two lines are perpendicular if and only if they intersect to form a right angle.
A. Is this a biconditional statement?
b. Is the statement true?
this is what I put
a. yes
b. yes

I don't know what biconditional means, but I'm pretty sure that b is true.

a.yes because a biconditional statement says "if and only if" so its true
and b is true also

haha right
I thought geometry was hard for a while but than it got easier =]

it's stil hard for me. :(

haha
are you in geometry any more?
Im in algebra 2 and its almost exactly the same as algebra 1 so its pretty easy

No, you seem smart! This geometry is harder than the class I'M taking, and I'm in honors! So you're very smart!

i was in honors in jr. high and my new high school doesn't offer it so i'm stuck in just regular geometry. I also think algebra 2 is easy it is just that geometry gets you sometimes.
