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**

(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.
