# Regular Rectangle

## Line of Symmetry

 Here my dog 'Flame' has her face made perfectly symmetrical with a bit of photo magic.The white line down the center is theLine of Symmetry

## Folding Test

You can find if a shape has a Line of Symmetry by folding it.

6 Which regular polygon has a minimum rotation of 45° to carry the polygon onto itself? 1) octagon 2) decagon 3) hexagon 4) pentagon 7 Which figure always has exactly four lines of reflection that map the figure onto itself? 1) square 2) rectangle 3) regular octagon 4) equilateral triangle 8 Which transformation would not carry a square onto. September 23, 2018. Available Sizes (approximate): 3×6, 4×8, 6×12, 8×16, 12×24, Custom Sizes Available. Available Finishes: Traditional, Manganese, & Antique Saltillo. Available Edges: Super & Regular. The Rectangle shape Mexican tile creates a variety of patterns. 15% overage is recommended for waste, cuts, and borders. Previous Project.

When the folded part sits perfectly on top (all edges matching), then the fold line is a Line of Symmetry.

Here I have folded a rectangle one way, and it didn't work.

So this is not a Line of Symmetry

But when I try it this way, it does work (the folded part sits perfectly on top, all edges matching):

So this is a Line of Symmetry

## Triangles

A Triangle can have 3, or 1 or no lines of symmetry:

## Properties Of A Rectangle

 Equilateral Triangle (all sides equal, all angles equal) Isosceles Triangle (two sides equal, two angles equal) Scalene Triangle (no sides equal, no angles equal) 3 Lines of Symmetry 1 Line of Symmetry No Lines of Symmetry

Different types of Quadrilaterals (a 4-sided plane shape):

 Square (all sides equal, all angles 90°) Rectangle (opposite sides equal, all angles 90°) Irregular Quadrilateral 4 Lines of Symmetry 2 Lines of Symmetry No Lines of Symmetry
 Kite Rhombus (all sides equal length) 1 Line of Symmetry 2 Lines of Symmetry

## Regular Polygons

A regular polygon has all sides equal, and all angles equal:

 An Equilateral Triangle (3 sides) has 3 Lines of Symmetry A Square (4 sides) has 4 Lines of Symmetry A Regular Pentagon (5 sides) has 5 Lines of Symmetry A Regular Hexagon (6 sides) has 6 Lines of Symmetry A Regular Heptagon (7 sides) has 7 Lines of Symmetry A Regular Octagon (8 sides) has 8 Lines of Symmetry

And the pattern continues:

• A regular polygon of 9 sides has 9 Lines of Symmetry
• A regular polygon of 10 sides has 10 Lines of Symmetry
• ...
• A regular polygon of 'n' sides has 'n' Lines of Symmetry

## Circle

A line (drawn at any angle) that goes through its center is a Line of Symmetry.

So a Circle has infinite Lines of Symmetry.
