Symmetrical Shapes

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:

One-Line Symmetry

One-Line Symmetry



(ii) Examples of the shapes having two - lines symmetry:

Two-Line Symmetry

Two – Lines Symmetry



(iii) Examples of the shapes having three - lines symmetry:

Three – Lines Symmetry

Three – Lines Symmetry



(iv) Examples of the shapes having four - lines symmetry:

Four – Lines Symmetry

Four – Lines Symmetry



(v) Examples of the shapes having many - lines symmetry:

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.
