# You have two set squares in your mathematical instrument box. Are they symmetric?  Answer Verified
Hint: For finding the symmetry of symmetry you have to pay attention to angles and the sides of the set squares.

Take both the set squares and observe their angles, one has angles of 30, 60 and 90 degrees. The others have 45, 45 and 90 degrees.
Since, both the set squares have different angles,
Therefore, No, they are not symmetric.

Note: Symmetry means both the figures or objects are exactly alike, all the parameters should be the same, if any one of the parameters is different it means they are asymmetric. In this question you can observe it in reference to the length of the sides as well.
