NCERT **Class 5 Maths Chapter 5 Does it look the same**, introduces the concept of symmetry, asymmetry, and rotation of an object.

In our day-to-day life we encounter many things which, when divided into two parts, each part looks the same. We can also tell that both the images are mirror image of each other.

Some examples of symmetry are triangle, heart shape, butterfly, some flowers and many other objects we see daily.

Symmetry is not just about shapes and flowers, but we can see many symmetrical objects around us.

Further, the chapter tells about mirror images, asymmetry and rotation of objects.

Our **Does it look the same worksheet with answer** contains various question types to help students learn about symmetry and rotation of images in an interactive way.

## Understanding Does it look the same

### What is Symmetry?

Symmetry is a mathematical concept that describes the balanced arrangement of parts around an axis.

In simple words, a **symmetrical figure** is one that can be divided into two identical halves by a line. It’s like having two matching pieces that fit together perfectly.

Here’s another way to think about it: imagine holding a piece of paper in half and then cutting it along the fold. If you open the paper, you will see that both sides are exactly alike.

For example, when we cut out a **â€˜triangleâ€™** from a piece of paper, we just fold the paper, draw half of the triangle at the fold and cut it out to find that the other half exactly matches the first half. The triangle formed is an example of symmetry.

Symmetry is a powerful concept in mathematics which helps us understand shapes, patterns, and even solve complex problems.

### What are Asymmetric figures?

Asymmetrical figures, on the other hand, are those that cannot be divided into two identical halves. They lack balance and order.

In simple words, the shapes and objects that are irregular and do not resemble each other when divided into two parts are called asymmetric figures.

### What is a Line of Symmetry?

A line that divides and object into two identical parts is called the **line of symmetry**.

The line of symmetry can be categorized based on its orientation as:

- Vertical Line of Symmetry
- Horizontal Line of Symmetry
- Diagonal Line of Symmetry

Now that you know what symmetry is, get ready to explore its amazing world! We’ll learn about different types of symmetry, see how it’s used in maths and daily life.

### Types of Symmetry

Line Symmetry (Bilateral Symmetry):

This is the most common type of symmetry. It occurs when a figure can be divided into two identical halves by a single line. This line is called the line of symmetry.

Examples of line symmetry are:**ButterflyLeafHuman face**

Rotational Symmetry:

This type of symmetry occurs when a figure can be rotated around a central point, and it looks the same after each rotation. The number of degrees it can be rotated before appearing identical is called the **order of rotational symmetry**.

Examples of rotational symmetry are:**CircleSnowflakeGearFlowerWheel**

Reflection Symmetry:

This type of symmetry occurs when a figure can be reflected across a line, and it looks the same after the reflection. This line is called the line of reflection.

Examples of reflection symmetry are:**Letter “H”ButterflyHuman faceTreeFlower**
