What shapes have exactly 4 lines of symmetry?

Square. A square has four lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order four.

What is a line of symmetry Year 3?

Something is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. A shape has symmetry if a central dividing line (a mirror line) can be drawn on it, to show that both sides of the shape are exactly the same.

What is a shape that has 3 lines of symmetry?

equilateral triangle
An equilateral triangle has three lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order 3. It has three equal sides.

Does Z have line of symmetry?

Letters H, O and Z have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry. Letters H, O and Z have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry.

Which shape has most lines of symmetry?

The most symmetric shape A circle has infinitely many lines of symmetry: any diameter lies on a line of symmetry through the center of the circle.

Does a square have 6 lines of symmetry?

A square has four lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order four.

What are lines of symmetry Year 2?

What is line symmetry? If a shape can be folded in half along a line and both halves are the same then this is known as a line of symmetry.

What is a symmetry shape?

Symmetry. A 2D shape is symmetrical if a line can be drawn through it and either side is a reflection of the other. The line is called a line of symmetry. This is sometimes called a ‘mirror line’ or ‘mirror symmetry’, because if you put a mirror on the line, the reflection would show the whole shape.

Which shapes have 2 or more lines of symmetry?

A shape can have more than one line of symmetry. Thus a rectangle has two lines of symmetry, an equilateral triangle has three lines of symmetry, and a square has four. A circle has an infinite number of lines of symmetry since it can be folded about any diameter.
