no we cant make

A regular hexagon with 6 equal sides will have 3 lines of symmetry

Draw five lines, 72 degrees off from each other, connecting each end to the next line.

You cannot. An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry, an isosceles has one and a scalene none. So there is no triangle with two lines of symmetry. Of course, you could draw only two of the three possible lines of symmetry for an equilateral triangle.

Yes

A regular pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry, running from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. These lines are not to be confused with the five lines it takes to draw a pentagon. Every regular polygon has as many lines of symmetry as there are lines in the polygon.An irregular pentagon may have none or 1 line of symmetry.

For a regular pentagon, draw a segment from each vertex to the midpoint of the side length directly opposite, there by cutting it in half.

Assuming that you mean pentagon, and not petagon, the answer is yes.

A regular hexagon with 6 equal sides will have 3 lines of symmetry

By connecting a line from each point to it's opposite side at a 90 degree angle.

From each vertex to its opposite vertex. These will be centered on a shared point at the center of the hexagon. Each complete line will be a line of symmetry for the hexagon.

Draw the shape kite and then do symmetry lines across it.

It depends what type of triange it is. If it is an equilateral triangle, you can draw 3 lines of symmetry If it is an isosceles triangle, you can draw 1 line of symmetry If it is a scalene triangle, you cannot draw any lines of symmetry
