# Which words have a horizontal line of symmetry?

## 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.
