# Can you draw a figure that has exactly 3 lines of symmetry?

## Can you draw a figure that has exactly 3 lines of symmetry?

(c) An equilateral triangle can be drawn with three lines of symmetry.

## Does a rectangle have 3 lines of symmetry?

A rectangle has two lines of symmetry.

**Can an isosceles triangle have 3 lines of symmetry?**

The division of triangles into scalene, isosceles, and equilateral can be thought of in terms of lines of symmetry. A scalene triangle is a triangle with no lines of symmetry while an isosceles triangle has at least one line of symmetry and an equilateral triangle has three lines of symmetry.

### Which figure has exactly one line of symmetry?

Trapezium. A trapezium has rotational symmetry of order one. Some trapeziums have one line of symmetry. They are called isosceles trapeziums as they have 2 sides of an equal length like isosceles triangles.

### Is a rhombus symmetrical?

A rhombus has an axis of symmetry through each pair of opposite vertex angles, while a rectangle has an axis of symmetry through each pair of opposite sides. The diagonals of a rhombus intersect at equal angles, while the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in length.

**How many lines of symmetry does rhombus have?**

2Rhombus / Line of symmetry

#### What triangle 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.

#### What shapes have exactly two lines of symmetry?

Rectangle

- A rectangle has two lines of symmetry.
- It has rotational symmetry of order two.

**Which figure appears to have exactly two lines of symmetry?**

rectangle

The rectangle is an example of Two Line of Symmetry. A Rectangle can be divided vertically, horizontal or diagonally to get the two symmetrical parts. A rhombus also has two lines of symmetry.

## How many lines of symmetry does the shape have?

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.

## Which figure appears exactly one line of symmetry?

An isosceles triangle: In the figure there is one line of symmetry.
