A figure has rotational symmetry if you can turn it about a figure.

There are 10 letters in the alphabet that achieve rotational symmetry when displayed in their capital form. These letters: A, H, I, M, O, U, V, W, X, and Y.

H,i,o,x

The letters S, N, Z, for example.

The rotational symmetry of a plane object is the number of times it will look exactly like its original shape when you rotate it through 360 degrees in its plane. A whole alphabet has no rotational symmetry but some letters in an alphabet may have rotational symmetry. The number of symmetries depends on the alphabet, whether the letters are in upper or lower case as well as the font used.
