# How many lines of symmetry does a regular polygon with 22 sides have?

Polygons are closed curves that are made of line segments. The polygons whose sides and angles are of equal magnitudes are called regular polygons.

## Answer: A 22-sided regular polygon has 22 lines of symmetry.

Let's understand the solution in detail.

**Explanation:**

As we know, regular polygons have equal sides and angles.

The number of lines of symmetry a regular polygon has is equal to the number of sides it has.

For example, a square has 4 lines of symmetry as shown: one vertical, one horizontal, and two passing through both the diagonals.

Similarly, an equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry. All the medians of an equilateral triangle are its lines of symmetry.

You can prove the same for regular pentagons, hexagons, etc.
