NCERT Solutions for Class 6 maths Chapter 13 Symmetry

Mathematically, Symmetry means that one shape becomes exactly like another when you move it in some way: turn, flip or slide. For two objects to be symmetrical, they must be the same size and shape, with one object having a different orientation from the first. There can also be Symmetry in one object, such as a face. A balanced and proportionate similarity found in two halves of an object is known as Symmetry. We can also say that one-half of the figure is the mirror image of the other half. Line of Symmetry is the imaginary line along which one can fold a figure to obtain the symmetrical halves. Symmetry is a topic which can be explained more with drawings and less with theory. So, the chapter contains lots of diagrams and examples of symmetric shapes to explain the case of Symmetry clearly. The solutions provided for this chapter deals with almost every possible type of symmetric shapes.
