|Lines of Symmetry
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?
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.
