## Which words have a horizontal line of symmetry?

Symmetrical Words Some long words with horizontal symmetry are: BEDECKED, BOOHOOED, CHECKBOOK, CODEBOOK, COOKBOOK, DECIDED, DIOXIDE, DOBCHICK, EXCEEDED, HOODOOED, and KEBOBBED. The longest such word, with ten letters, is OKEECHOBEE.

## Does a rectangle have horizontal symmetry?

The rectangle has only two, as it can be folded in half horizontally or vertically: students should be encouraged to try to fold the rectangle in half diagonally to see why this does not work. The trapezoid has only a vertical line of symmetry.

**Does a rectangle have 3 lines of symmetry?**

A rectangle has two lines of symmetry.

**What lines of symmetry does a rectangle have?**

2

Rectangle/Line of symmetry

### What is horizontal symmetry?

A horizontal line of symmetry is that line that runs across the image thus dividing into two identical halves. This line may also be called a sleeping straight line that parts an image or shape into identical halves. English alphabets also are good examples of horizontal symmetry.

### What is the longest word with horizontal symmetry?

CHECKBOOK

CHECKBOOK, provided it is written in upper case letters, is the longest word in the English language with a line of horizontal symmetry.

**Which figure has exactly three lines of symmetry?**

equilateral triangle

An equilateral triangle has three lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order 3. It has three equal sides.

**Does a rectangle have 4 lines of symmetry?**

A rectangle has two lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order two.

#### How many lines do rectangle have?

2 lines

A rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry.

#### What type of symmetry does a rectangle have?

For a rectangle, both the line and rotational symmetry exists which are discussed below. There are 2 symmetry lines of a rectangle which are from its length and breadth. These two lines cut the rectangle in two similar halves which are mirror images of each other. If a rectangle is folded along its line of symmetry, it superimposes perfectly.

**What letters have two lines of symmetry?**

Two Lines of Symmetry can be a combination of Vertical, diagonal or Horizontal Lines. Letters such as H and X also have two lines of Symmetry. An hourglass is also an example of Two Lines of Symmetry.

**What are the different types of symmetry in shapes?**

A shape can be different types of symmetry, such as linear symmetry, mirror symmetry, reflectional symmetry, and so on. A shape can be two or more lines of symmetry. To recall, a rectangle is one of the quadrilaterals whose two opposite sides are equal and parallelogram. Thus, a rectangle is also considered as a special parallelogram.

## What is the difference between horizontal and vertical line of symmetry?

In such a case, the line of symmetry is vertical. The horizontal line of symmetry divides a shape into identical halves, when split horizontally, i.e., cut from right to left or vice-versa. For example, the following shape can be split into two equal halves when cut horizontally. In such a case, the line of symmetry is horizontal.
