# Which statements are true about the lines of symmetry of a regular pentagon? Check all that apply and explain.

Every line connects two vertices.

Every line connects the midpoints of 2 sides.

Every line bisects a vertex angle.

Every line bisects a side.

Every line is perpendicular to a side.

**Solution:**

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

A regular pentagon has 5 equal sides.

Therefore, a regular pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry.

From the above figure it is clear that

- Each line passes through a vertex
- Each line bisects a vertex angle
- Each line is perpendicular to a side

## Which statements are true about the lines of symmetry of a regular pentagon? Check all that apply and explain.

**Summary:**

The statements which are true about the lines of symmetry of a regular pentagon are : (i) Every line bisects a vertex angle (ii) Every line bisects a side. (iii) Every line is perpendicular to a side.
