The following diagram shows the line of symmetry for quadrilaterals and triangles. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on lines of symmetry.

**Reflection Symmetry (or Line Symmetry) and Rotational Symmetry**

Symmetry in a figure exists if there is a reflection, rotation, or translation that can be performed and the image is identical. Reflectional symmetry exists when the figure can be folded over onto itself along a line. This line is called the "line of symmetry". In regular polygons, the number of lines of symmetry equals the number of sides in the polygon.

**Line Symmetry and Rotational Symmetry**

Learn to identify lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry**Plane Symmetry**

Plane symmetry is analogous to line symmetry, except that it is in three dimensions. The three dimensional figure is divided into two halves by a plane.

**Plane symmetry and axis symmetry**
