# How many lines of symmetry does a octopus have?

## How many lines of symmetry does a octopus have?

8 lines of
Answer: A regular octagon has 8 lines of symmetry. Let’s look at the figure of a regular octagon given below. Explanation: The lines of symmetry divide a figure into identical pieces.

### What is the symmetry of an octopus?

Octopuses have bilateral symmetry in their body, meaning the left side is a mirror image of the right side. Animals with bilateral symmetry always have a preferred direction of locomotion relative to the orientation of the body.

#### How many lines do symmetry have?

Regular Polygons

An Equilateral Triangle (3 sides) has 3 Lines of Symmetry
A Square (4 sides) has 4 Lines of Symmetry
A Regular Pentagon (5 sides) has 5 Lines of Symmetry
A Regular Hexagon (6 sides) has 6 Lines of Symmetry
A Regular Heptagon (7 sides) has 7 Lines of Symmetry

In what ways is the octopus bilaterally symmetric?

Like you or I, an octopus has “bilateral symmetry.” This means it has a left and a right side that are mirror images of each other. If you could fold an octopus (or a human) in half on a line running between the eyes, the halves would line up.

Does an octagon have 4 lines of symmetry?

A regular octagon (sides and angles equal) has eight lines of symmetry.

## What is symmetry line?

A line of symmetry is a line that cuts a shape exactly in half. This means that if you were to fold the shape along the line, both halves would match exactly. Equally, if you were to place a mirror along the line, the shape would remain unchanged. A square has 4 lines of symmetry, as shown below.

### Do octopuses have fronts?

LITTLE: They do have a clear front and back, as they have eyes on the sides of their bodies, on the sides of their mantle.

#### What is an octopus mantle?

Mantle. The mantle is a highly muscled structure that houses all of the animal’s organs The strong muscles in the mantle protect the organs and help with respiration and contraction. Digestive gland. Organ producing a secretion that helps digestion.

Which shape has no line of symmetry?

A scalene triangle, parallelogram, and a trapezium are three examples of shapes with no line of symmetry.

What are the 4 types of symmetry?

Types of symmetries are rotational symmetry, reflection symmetry, translation symmetry, and glide reflection symmetry. These four types of symmetries are examples of different types of symmetry on a flat surface called planar symmetry.

## Which way is the front of the octopus?

The octopus is bilaterally symmetrical along its dorso-ventral axis; the head and foot are at one end of an elongated body and function as the anterior (front) of the animal. The head includes the mouth and brain.
