Lines of symmetry for regular polygons:

Polygon is a closed figure made of several line segments. A polygon is said to be regular if all its sides are of equal length and all its angles are of equal measure.

1) An equilateral triangle is a regular polygon of three sides. An equilateral triangle is regular because each of its sides has the same length and each of its angles measures 60°.

2) A square is also regular because all its sides are of equal length and each of its angles is a right angle (i.e., 90°). Its diagonals are seen to be perpendicular bisectors of one another.

3) If a pentagon is regular, naturally, its sides should have equal length. The measure of each of its angles is 108°.

4) A regular hexagon has all its sides equal and each of its angles measures 120°.

The regular polygons are symmetrical figures and hence their lines of symmetry are quite interesting, Each regular polygon has multiple lines of symmetry.
