Best Answer

A polygon with 14 sides can have at most 14 lines of symmetry. This would occur if the polygon was a regular polygon (i.e. all its sides would have to be equal and all its angles would have to be equal). The lines of symmetry would run between the midpoints of opposite sides and between opposite vertices.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

No, a polygon can have fewer lines of symmetry.


What is the rule for the number lines of symmetry of any regular polygon?

How many lines of symmetry does a polygon has?

A polygon need not have any lines of symmetry. The maximum number of lines of symmetry is attained if the polygon is regular; and this is the number of sides (or vertices) of the polygon. If a regular polygon has an even number of sides, then the lines of symmetry are those joining opposite vertices, and those joining the mid-points of opposite sides. If the polygon has an odd number of sides/vertices, the lines of symmetry are those joining each vertex to the mid-point of the opposite side.

Which polygon has exact two lines of symmetry and is NOT a quadrilateral?

Any polygon with an even number of sides can have two lines of symmetry, but it would have to be irregular.


Do polygons have to have one line of symmetry?

The number of lines of symmetry in a polygon corresponds to the number of sides it has. If a polygon has n sides, then its symmetry will be n lines of symmetry and it will have one point of symmetry. A pentagon has five lines of symmetry, nonagon has 9, n-gon has n lines of symmetry, so on and so forth.


How many lines of symmetry does a plolygon have?

It depends on how many sides that it has and whether of not it is regular (all the lines of the polygon are of equal length if it is a regular polygon). For regular polygons, the number of symmetry lines is the number of sides if number of sides is an odd number. Otherwise, the number of symmetry lines is double the number of sides. A square has 4 sides and 8 symmetry lines; a triangle has 3 sides and 3 symmetry lines.


What prediction can be made about the number lines of symmetry in a polygon that has 6 sides of the same length?
