Symmetry

 

Symmetry or Reflection symmetry divides the shape into two identical parts. The line can be vertical, horizontal or diagonal. The line of Symmetry is when a shape looks identical to its original shape after being flipped or turned

When an object is reflected across a line, like looking in a mirror, it is called line symmetry or mirror symmetryreflection symmetry. Consider the examples illustrated below.
