# Reflection in Math

Top
 Sub Topics By the term Reflections Math, we Mean the line where two halves of any figure are exactly equal. Then we say that one side of the figure is reflection half of the other. While we study Reflection Geometry, we draw the line in between complete figure such that we get two halves of the figure exactly equal. Reflection in math means that the line in the figure, when the figure is folded, exactly overlaps each other. While we study about the reflection in math, we must ensure that line representing the reflection Symmetry of the figure is drawn in form of the dotted lines. Different figures have different number of reflection symmetry. Let us first look at the irregular figures. Such figures do not have any reflection symmetry. It simply means that, we are not able to draw any line on the irregular figures, as they are not divided in two equal halves. Now let us look at Circle and see that is it comes in reflection math or not? In a circle, every Diameter we draw divides the figure into two equal halves. So we say that there is infinite number of reflection symmetry in a circle. Now let us look at an Isosceles Triangle. The Median drawn on an isosceles triangle divides the triangle in two equal halves, so we say that, the triangle has one reflection symmetry. Let us now consider the figure with four sides, which we call as quadrilateral. In case of an equilateral quadrilateral, which we call as Square, have four reflection symmetry. Thus, we can say that, a square has 4 lines of reflection symmetry.
