A regular 6 sided hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry

An irregular hexagon has no axes of symmetry. A regular hexagon, on the other hand, has 6 axes of symmetry: three lines joining the midpoints of opposite sides, and three lines joining opposite vertices.

It depends on the type of regular polygon Triangle: 3 Quadrilateral (square) : 4 Pentagon: 5 Hexagon: 6 Heptagon: 7 Nonagon: 9 Decagon: 10

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.
