Symmetrical shapes are discussed here in this topic.
We know that in one symmetrical figure may have more than one line of symmetry.
Some symmetrical shapes have one line of symmetry, some have two and some have more than two, as shown below:
(i) Examples of the shapes having one-line symmetry:
(ii) Examples of the shapes having two - lines symmetry:
Two – Lines Symmetry
(iii) Examples of the shapes having three - lines symmetry:
Three – Lines Symmetry
(iv) Examples of the shapes having four - lines symmetry:
Four – Lines Symmetry
(v) Examples of the shapes having many - lines symmetry:
Many – Lines Symmetry
Thus we may conclude that;
(i) Some shapes have no line of symmetry,
(ii) some have one line of symmetry,
(iii) some have two,
(iv) some have three and
(v) some have many lines of symmetry.
A circle has innumerable lines of symmetry that pass through its centre,
The knowledge of symmetrical shapes and lines of symmetry is very useful for making symmetrical designs.
