# 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 measures

## 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 look into the below diagram 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.
