Maths Symmetry part 4 (Line Symmetry) CBSE Class 6 Mathematics VI

## TL;DR

This video explains line symmetry and how to identify it in different figures, using examples of a circle and a square.

## Key Insights

• 🫥 Line symmetry is the phenomenon of a figure having identical parts that coincide when folded along a line.
• 🫥 The line along which a figure is folded is called the line of symmetry.
• 🫥 Line symmetry can be identified by folding a figure to see if the two halves coincide.
• 🫥 A square can have multiple lines of symmetry, including its diagonals.
• 🫥 Line symmetry is also known as the axis of symmetry.
• 🫥 The number of lines of symmetry in a figure can vary.
• 🫥 Line symmetry is a fundamental concept in geometry.

## Transcript

hello friends this video on symmetry part 4 is brought to you by example calm no more fear from exam so now that we got an idea about what symmetry is let us talk about line symmetry now a figure has a line symmetry if there is a line about which the figure may be folded so that the two parts of the figure coincides so basically whatever examples w...

### Q: What is line symmetry?

Line symmetry is when a figure can be folded along a line and both parts of the figure coincide, creating identical halves.

### Q: What is the difference between line symmetry and rotational symmetry?

Line symmetry is about folding a figure along a line, while rotational symmetry is about obtaining identical halves through rotation.

### Q: How can line symmetry be identified in a circle?

A circle possesses line symmetry because it can be folded along a line to create two identical halves that coincide with each other.

### Q: Does a butterfly have line symmetry?

Yes, a butterfly has line symmetry because it can be folded along a line to create two identical halves that coincide with each other.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• Line symmetry is when a figure can be folded along a line so that both parts of the figure coincide.

• The video focuses on line symmetry, as rotational symmetry is studied in higher classes.

• Examples of line symmetry are shown using a circular sheet of paper and a butterfly.
