An octagon has 8 lines of reflective symmetry.

Regular polygons have lines of symmetry equal to the number of sides/angles that they possess so a hexagon would have 6 lines of symmetry. (: * * * * * However, the question is not about a polygon but a polyhedron! A prism with regual hexagonal bases has six lines of symmetry at the bases, but it also has a line of symmetry along the centre of its length. Furthermore, there are infinitely many lines of symmetry in the plane that divides it halfway along its length.

16. 8 through pairs of opposite vertices and another 8 through the midpoints of opposite sides.

I have been doing research, and I found there in no way to use a calculator. But, I will list some shapes, and their lines of symmetry. Hexagon,6 lines pentagon,5 lines square,4 octagon,8 circle,never ending/to many to count decagon,10 Notice that the lines of symmetry have the same number as the number of corners. Example, octagon; eight corners, eight sides, eight lines of symmetry. It is like that with all shapes that have sides that are the same lengths. So it has to be a regular shape. Example, it can't be a flat tire( one line of symmetry, 0 sides, and 0 corners).

An octagon has eight vertices, as vertices means the point of intersection of lines(a corner).
