# Rotational Symmetry

What is rotational symmetry?

When the figure is turned about a fixed point; it is called rotation.

This rotation can be: (a) clockwise (b) anticlockwise

The fixed about which the figure is rotated is called centre of rotation.

The angle of turning during rotation is called the angle of rotation.

A quarter turn means a rotation of 90°

A half turn means a rotation of 180°

A full turn means a rotation of 360°

A figure is said to have rotational symmetry if it onto more than once during a complete rotation, i.e., 360°
