# How many lines of symmetry does an equilateral triangle have?

Symmetry is observed when two or more parts are identical after a flip, slide, or turn. An **equilateral triangle** is one that has all sides equal to each other and every angle is equal to 60 degrees.

## Answer: An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry.

Let's look into the below diagram to understand the lines of symmetry in an equilateral triangle.

**Explanation:**

Symmetry exists all around us. Symmetry can be defined as a reflection or mirror image created for any line, shape, or object.

A line of symmetry is the imaginary line passing through the center of the object that divides it into two halves.

The lines of symmetry divide the equilateral triangle into equal parts.
