# Can we have a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 whose angle of rotation is

(i) 45°? (ii) 17°?

**Solution:**

When an object is rotated in a particular direction, around a point, then it is known as rotational symmetry, also known as radial symmetry. Rotational symmetry exists when a shape is turned, and the shape is identical to the origin.

If the given angle is a factor of 360°, only then the figure will have rotational symmetry of order more than one.

(i) 45° is a factor of 360°, so the figure will have rotational symmetry of order more than 1 and there would be 8 rotations.

(ii) 17° is not a factor of 360°, so the figure will not have rotational symmetry of order of more than 1.
