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

A regular pentagon is a polygon with 5 sides of equal measures

## Answer: A regular pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry

Let's draw the lines of symmetry in a regular pentagon

**Explanation:**

Let's draw a diagram of a regular pentagon then lines of symmetry

The number of lines of symmetry in a regular polygon is equal to the number of sides. We know that, a regular pentagon has 5 sides as well. Therefore, it has 5 lines of symmetry

Below is the image of a regular pentagon with its lines of symmetry
