I certainly hope that no textbook says that.
Two lines are skew to one another if and only if they are non-parallel and non-intersecting.
Therefore, in a plane there are no skew lines.
In my text book it says that a two lines are skew iff they are neither parallel or perpendicular to each other (and therefore don't lie on the same plane). The last part confuses me because two lines can be perpendicular or parallel in 2 space but in 3 space the same lines could lie on differnt levels of the z-axis and still be going in the same direction as in 2 space.

I am starting to see where my confusion lies. This may seem like an unconnected question, but say I was given the parametrization of 2 lines, if I could solve the system of equations for the 2 parameters, does that means that the 2 lines are necessarily perpendicular, or they just intersect?
PS no, you're right, my textbook did not say that explicitly
Hi all!
I've just visited this forum. Happy to get acquainted with you. Thanks.
