# Construct a regular hexagon of side $5 cm$. Hence determine the number of lines of symmetry can be drawn for a regular hexagon.

We have a regular hexagon of side $5 cm$ as given in the figure above.
As we can see that lines joining the opposite sides of the hexagon correspond to $3$ lines of symmetry, also the lines joining midpoints of opposite sides of the hexagon correspond to the line of symmetry which is again $3$ in number. Hence overall we have $6$ lines of symmetry which are clearly shown by the dotted line in the figure given above.
