# Parallel Symbol

In geometry, the parallel symbol is used to denote two lines that are parallel to eachother. Typically the parallel symbol is used in an expression like this:

\overline{AB} \parallel \overline{CD}

In plain langauge this means that the line defined by the two points A and B and the other line defined by the two points C and D are parallel to each other.
