# How many lines of symmetry does a regular hexagon have?

Symmetry is observed when two or more parts are identical after a flip, slide, or turn.

A regular hexagon is a polygon with 6 sides of equal measure.

## Answer: A regular hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry.

For all regular polygons, the number of lines of symmetry is equal to the number of sides.

## Explanation:

Let's observe the following figure to understand the lines of symmetry of a regular hexagon.

We can see that a regular hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry.

The 6 lines of symmetry divide the hexagon into 6 congruent parts.

### Hence, we see that a regular hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry.
