Chapter 18 Symmetry Exercise 18.1

Question: 1

State the number of lines of symmetry for the following figures:

(i) An equilateral triangle

(ii) An isosceles triangle

(iii) A scalene triangle

(iv) A rectangle

(v) A rhombus

(vi) A square

(vii) A parallelogram

(viii) A quadrilateral

(ix) A regular pentagon

(x) A regular hexagon

(xi) A circle

(xii) A semi-circle

Solution:

(i) An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry.

(ii) An isosceles triangle has 1 line of symmetry.

(iii) A scalene triangle has no line of symmetry.

(iv) A rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry.

(v) A rhombus has 2 lines of symmetry.

(vi) A square has 4 lines of symmetry.

(vii) A parallelogram has no line of symmetry.

(viii) A quadrilateral has no line of symmetry.

(ix) A regular pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry.

(x) A regular hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry.

(xi) A circle has an infinite number of lines of symmetry all along the diameters.

(xii) A semicircle has only one line of symmetry.

 

Question: 2

What other name can you give to the line of symmetry of

(i) An isosceles triangle?

(ii) A circle?

Solution:

(i) An isosceles triangle has only 1 line of symmetry.

Chapter 18 Symmetry Exercise 18.1 Question 2

This line of symmetry is also known as the altitude of an isosceles triangle.

(ii) A circle has infinite lines of symmetry all along its diameters.
