Many shapes have more than one line of symmetry. These include a rectangle, equilateral triangle, and a square. While a rectangle has two lines of symmetry, an equilateral triangle has three.

A triangle has only one line of symmetry but who ever says there are more than two is a idiot * * * * * A triangle, in general has NO line of symmetry, so who ever (or whoever) says there is one is and acts smart about it is a bigger idiot! That is even more so when the question is about a cone and not a triangle! What a loser! A cone, in general has no line of symmetry. A right cone has one.

not possible

effectively yes. Diagonal symmetry is when the line of symmetry goes diagonally, rather than horizontally or vertically

H, I, O, X

An Isosceles triangle has at least one line of symmetry but if it has more than one line of symmetry it can be an Equilateral triangle as well as a Isosceles Triangle. So a triangle with one line of symmetry is always Isosceles and If it has more than one it is always an Equilateral triangle as well as an Isosceles triangle. Example of an Isosceles triangle:

Depending on the triangle, there can be 0, 1, or three lines of symmetry. A scalene triangle (all sides of different lengths) will have no lines of symmetry, an isosceles triangle (exactly two sides of the same length) will have one line of symmetry, and an equilateral triangle (all three sides of the same length) will have three lines of symmetry.

No because the maximum lines of symmetry a triangle can have is 3 as an equilateral triangle and 1 as an isosceles triangle otherwise a triangle has no lines of symmetry.

A rectangle,hexagon,octagon,triangle,decagon. It could be that looks dividable because no matter where you divide it, it has a line of symmetry... It could also be a snowflake!

A heart. Triangles can have more than one depending on the type.

It depends what type of triangle it is. If it is a scalene triangle, ie. a triangle with three different length sides and angles, then it won't have any lines of symmetry. If it's an iscosoles triangle, ie. a triangle with two sides and angles of equal length, it has one line of symmetry, but if it's an equalateral triangle, ie. a triangle with all sides and angles the same, then it has three lines of symmetry.

There could be many answers to this. If were thinking in terms of geometry: a triangle has between 1 and 3 lines of symmetry a square will always have 4 lines of symmetry. Irregular shapes might have a single line of symmetry. For instance, a building may have a single line of symmetry. a line between two points may only have one line of symmetry. because it is only 2 dimensions, it is impossible for it to have more than one line of symmetry.

It depends on the triangle. Some have none, some have one, and some have three.I'm not positive, but I'd bet a nickel that it can't have two.
