## Question 53

### Write in Short

Short Answer▾For the shape shown,

Write down

(a) The number of lines of symmetry,

(b) The order of rotational symmetry

### Explanation

Here,

(a) If we can reflect a figure over a line and the figure appears unaffected, then the figure has reflection symmetry or line symmetry.

- The line that you reflect over is called the line of symmetry.
- A line of symmetry divides a figure into two mirror-image separations.
- The number of lines of symmetry of a regular hexagon is
**6**because it has six equal sides by reflecting all we can get same image as it is.

(b) The order of rotational symmetry of a regular hexagon is also **6** becausewhen we rotate it, it will see in same position as shown in given figure for six times.
