 # Which Figure Has Rotational Symmetry But No Line Symmetry?

## What is difference between line symmetry and rotational symmetry?

Remember that symmetry is the word given to define when the exact same shape appears across a line or point.

Line symmetry is perhaps the easier to understand, as it involves a mirror image.

Rotational symmetry refers to that kind of symmetry that is rotated around a point..

## How do you identify rotational symmetry?

A figure has rotational symmetry if it can be rotated by an angle between 0° and 360° so that the image coincides with the preimage. The angle of rotational symmetry is the smallest angle for which the figure can be rotated to coincide with itself.

## Can a shape have rotational symmetry of order 1?

A shape has rotational symmetry when it can be rotated and it still looks the same. The order of rotational symmetry of a shape is the number of times it can be rotated around a full circle and still look the same. … The minimum order of rotational symmetry a shape can have is 1.

## Is a figure that has neither a line of symmetry nor a rotational symmetry?

A scalene triangle has neither a line of symmetry nor a rotational symmetry.

## Is it possible for a figure to have rotational symmetry and no Reflectional symmetry?

Not all figures have rotational symmetry. A trapezoid, for example, when spun about its center point, will not return to its original appearance until it has been spun 360º. It has no rotational symmetry.

## What figures have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry?

Answer: Two figures that have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry are: Circle and Square.

## Which letter has no line of symmetry?

Letters like B and D have a horizontal line of symmetry: their top and bottom parts match. Some letters, for example, X, H, and O, have both vertical and horizontal lines of symmetry. And some, like P, R, and N, have no lines of symmetry.

## What are the 4 types of symmetry?

The four main types of this symmetry are translation, rotation, reflection, and glide reflection.

## Which figure has only rotational symmetry?

Common figures with only rotational symmetry are the recycling sign and fan blades. If a figure coincides with the original twice in one full turn, it has two-fold rotational symmetry, or rotational symmetry order two. Regular polygons always have rotational symmetry.

## What is the difference between point symmetry and rotational symmetry?

With Rotational Symmetry, the image is rotated (around a central point) so that it appears 2 or more times. How many times it appears is called the Order. Point Symmetry is when every part has a matching part: the same distance from the central pointbut in the opposite direction.

## What is point symmetry example?

Yes, pick a direction, and anything with Point Symmetry will look the same from the opposite direction, too. Example: When cut at 45° the two halves of this card are exactly the same. In other words the view from 45°, and the opposite direction (which is 225°) are the same.
