Lines of Symmetry

This crescent has one line of symmetry.

This diamond has two lines of symmetry.

This triangle has three lines of symmetry.

A figure exhibits symmetry when part of the figure is the mirror image of another part of the figure. For example, an object has line (or reflection) symmetry when one side of the figure is a mirror image of the other across the line of symmetry (for example, a heart has linear symmetry). An object has plane symmetry when two halves of the object are mirror reflections of each other across a plane of symmetry (for example, a cylinder has plane symmetry). An object has radial (or point) symmetry when it is symmetric around a point (for example, a circle has point symmetry since every point on the circle has a mirror image of itself across the central point).
