Ex 14.3 | Question 7

## 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 $$1.$$
