Q:
# What relationship is formed by a line of symmetry and the line between opposite points in the symmetry

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:A line of symmetry and the line between opposite points in the symmetry are perpendicular to each other. Explanation:A line of simmetry splits the figure into two identical halves. Suppose you have a symmetrical plane figure (like a square or a circle), the line of symmetry divides such figure in two sides: call them the left side and the right side.The reflection of each point on the right side is a point on the left side along the perpendicular line that joins the two points and the line of symmetry.For instance, if the line of symmetry is vertical, such as the x-axis, the line between the opposite points in the symmetry is horizontal, i.e. perpendicular to the x-axis (the line of summetry).
