## Gujarat Board Textbook Solutions Class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Symmetry Ex 14.3

Question 1.
Name any two figures that have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry.
Solution:

An equilateral triangle and circle have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry.

Question 2.
Draw, wherever possible, a rough sketch of
(i) a triangle with both line and rotational symmetries of order more than 1.
(ii) a triangle with only line symmetry and no rotational symmetry of order more than 1.
(iii) a quadrilateral with a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 but not a line symmetry,
(iv) a quadrilateral with line symmetry but not a rotational symmetry of order more than 1.
Solution:
(i) An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry. An equilateral triangle has rotational symmetry also of order 3.

(ii) It is not possible to have such a triangle.

(iii) Trapezium

(iv) Not possible.

Question 3.

Question 5.
Name the quadrilaterals which have both line and rotational symmetry of order more than 1.
Solution:
The square, rectangle and a rhombus are the quadrilaterals having both line symmetry and rotational symmetry.

Question 6.
After rotating by 60Ā° about a centre, a figure looks exactly the same as its original position. At what other angles will this happen for the figure?
Solution:
The figure will look exactly the same as its original position at: 120Ā°, 180Ā°, 240Ā°, 300Ā°, and 360Ā°.
