**Regular Shape Shapes are regular when**

All their sides are the same length All their angles are the same size

50
**when they are always the same distance apart.**

Parallel Lines are parallel when they are always the same distance apart.

51
**when they meet at right angles.**

Perpendicular Lines are perpendicular when they meet at right angles.

52
Vertex A Vertex is a corner of a shape where two lines meet.

53
Diagonal A Diagonal is a straight line that joins one corner (vertex) of a shape to a non adjacent corner (vertex)
