**Rotational symmetry**is when an object is rotated around a center point (turned) a number of degrees and the object appear the same. The order of

**symmetry**is the number of positions the object looks the same in a 360-degree

**rotation**.

Herein, what is rotational symmetry give examples?

Many shapes have **rotational symmetry**, such as rectangles, squares, circles, **and** all regular polygons. Choose an object **and** rotate it up to 180 degrees around its center. If at any point the object appears exactly like it did before the **rotation**, then the object has **rotational symmetry**.

Also Know, what is rotational symmetry geometry? A figure has **rotational symmetry** if it can be rotated by an angle between 0° and 360° so that the image coincides with the preimage. The angle of **rotational symmetry** is the smallest angle for which the figure can be rotated to coincide with itself.

In this manner, what happens rotational symmetry?

A shape has **Rotational Symmetry** when it still looks the same after some **rotation** (of less than one full turn). How many times it matches as we go once around is called the Order.

Does the letter N have rotational symmetry?

Capital **letters** that **have rotational symmetry** are: Z, S, H, **N** and O. Examples of **letters** with a horizontal line of **symmetry** include B, C, D, E, H, I, K, O, S and X.
