Planes Q and R are parallel. Explain how you know lines a and b are skew.Sample Response: Skew lines are noncoplanar and do not intersect. Line a lies in plane Q and line b lies in plane R, so the lines are not coplanar. No other plane can be drawn through the lines, so they are not parallel. So, a and b are skew
