Copy the figures with punched holes and find the axis of symmetry for the following:

The axis or line of symmetry is an imaginary line that runs through the centre of a shape creating two perfectly identical halves.

Figure | Axis of symmetry | Explanation |

The given figure is a sqaure and the holes lie on opposite sides. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a line vertical and horizontal through the mid point of the square. | ||

The given figure is a square and the holes lie on one corner. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a the diagonal of the square in between the holes. | ||

The given figure is a square and the holes lie on one side. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a horizontal line through the centre in between the holes. | ||

The given figure is a square and the holes lie on opposite sides. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a horizontal line through the centre in between the holes. | ||

The given figure is a square and the holes lie on each of the 4 corners. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a horizontal and a vertical line along with the two diagonals of the square. | ||

The given figure is a square and the holes lie in the middle and on one side of the square. Hence, the line of symmetry will just be a vertical line through the centre bisecting one of the holes. | ||

The given figure is a triangle and the holes lie on two corners of the triangle. Hence, the line of symmetry will be the median of the triangle in between the two holes. | ||

The given figure is a triangle and the holes lie on two corners of the triangle. Hence, the line of symmetry will be the median of the triangle in between the two holes. | ||

The given figure is a triangle and the holes lie on the median. Hence, the line of symmetry will be the median bisecting the two holes. | ||

The given figure is a circle and the holes lie on the horizontal diameter. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a vertical line in between the holes and a horizontal line bisecting the two holes and both passing through the centre. | ||

The given figure is a circle and the holes lie on the horizontal and vertical diameter. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a vertical line vertical and horizontal passing through the centre and bisecting the holes. | ||

The given figure is a circle where two holes lie on the horizontal diameter and one on the vertical diameter. Hence, the line of symmetry will be a vertical line on the diameter bisecting the hole. |
