plane
a flat surface that extends indefinitely in all directions and has no thickness.
intersecting lines
lie in the same plane and have exactly one point in common.
parallel lines
lines in the same plane that never intersect.
skew lines
lie in different planes and are neither parallel nor intersecting.
angle
is a figure formed by two rays with a common endpoint.
vertex

an angle of 180 degrees
complementary angles
Two angles whose sum is 90 degrees
supplementary angles
