# What is a quarter turn symmetry?

## What is a quarter turn symmetry?

A half-turn means rotation by 180° a quarter-turn means rotation by 90°. Rotation may be clockwise or anticlockwise. If, after a rotation, an object looks exactly the same, we say that it has a rotational symmetry.

## What is quarter turn of shapes?

A half turn is in the opposite direction and a quarter turn is half of this. A full turn is facing in the original direction and a three-quarter turn is half way between half a turn and a full turn. Finding Half of a Shape. Quarters of Shapes.

What is one quarter of a rotation?

You may recall from geometry that a full rotation is 360 degrees, usually written as 360°. Half a rotation is then 180° and a quarter rotation is 90°.

### Which of the following shapes has rotational symmetry about quarter turn?

square
A square has quarter-turn rotation symmetry, and so has an order of 4.

### What is half turn symmetry?

What does it look like? It looks the same as before! Now, If we cut the picture in half through the pin hole and turn one piece a halfturn (180 degrees), we get two identical pieces. If a picture can be turned a halfturn and still look the same, then we say that the picture has halfturn symmetry.

What means by rotation of a A half turn B a quarter turn *?

A half turn means rotation by 90 degrees ; a quarter turn means rotation by 360 degrees.

#### Which shape will look the same after quarter turn?

After (1/4)th of a turn, i.e. (41×360o=90o) is only the shapes having 4 sides same and the circle.

What angle does a quarter turn in a circle make?

There are 90° in a quarter turn.

## Which of the following shapes have rotational symmetry about a half turn?

Rectangle
Rectangle has opposite sides equal. So it is having rotational symmetry at every ½ turn.
