# How many lines of symmetry does a pentagon have? | How many lines of symmetry does a regular pentagon have?

The number of lines of symmetry a pentagon has depends on whether it is a regular pentagon or an irregular pentagon.

A regular pentagon has **5 lines of symmetry**. Each line of symmetry passes through a vertex and the midpoint of the opposite side, dividing the pentagon into two equal halves.

On the other hand, **an irregular pentagon may have fewer lines of symmetry or none at all**, depending on its shape and proportions.
