In standard fonts, the letters A, M, T, U, V, W and Y each has a vertical line of symmetry that divides it into two corresponding mirror images. B, C, D, E and K have horizontal lines of symmetry. Both horizontal and ver... More »

In geometry, a line of symmetry is a line that divides a shape into two halves that match exactly, as if reflected in a mirror. Line symmetry is sometimes called reflective symmetry because each point on one side of the ... More »

A square has four lines of symmetry. One line crosses through each diagonal. The other two lines cross horizontally and vertically through the middle of the square. More »

The number of lines of symmetry of a parallelogram depends on the type of parallelogram. A non-special parallelogram does not have any lines of symmetry. This includes any quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel and equ... More »

The directrix of a parabola refers to a straight line that is drawn perpendicular to the axis of symmetry of a parabola. This line does not touch the parabola at any point. In addition, it is a horizontal line if the axi... More »
