**angle of rotational symmetry for a square**is 90 degrees.

Also asked, what is the smallest angle of rotational symmetry?

The **angle of rotational symmetry** is the **smallest angle** for which the figure can be rotated to coincide with itself. The order of **symmetry** is the number of times the figure coincides with itself as its rotates through 360° . Example: A regular hexagon has **rotational symmetry**.

Secondly, what is the smallest angle of rotational symmetry for a regular octagon? The **smallest angle of rotational symmetry** that maps a **regular octagon** onto itself would be 45°.

how do you find the smallest degree of rotational symmetry?

A full **rotation** requires 360 **degrees**. To **find** the **degree of rotation**, you would divide 360 **degrees** by the order. Since 2 is the **smallest** order possible, then 180 is the largest **degree of rotation** possible.

What is the smallest angle of rotational symmetry that maps a regular Nonagon onto itself?

SOLUTION: What's the **smallest angle of rotational symmetry that maps a regular nonagon onto itself**. = 20 degrees.
