## Question

Can we have a rotational symmetry of order more than \(1\) whose angle of rotation is –

(i) \(45^\circ\) (ii) \(17^\circ\)

## Text Solution

**What is known?**

Angle of rotations

**What is unknown?**

The figures have rotational symmetry of order more than \(1\) with the angles \(45^\circ\) and \(17^\circ\)

**Reasoning:**

If the given angle is a factor of \(360^\circ,\) then the figure will have rotational symmetry of order more than one otherwise not.

**Steps:**

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

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