In math, a symmetry line refers to an imaginary line that one can fold an image or shape such that both halves match exactly. In a five-pointed star, there are five of these lines. One finds these symmetry lines by drawing a line that extends from the top of each of the five points to the opposite side. In each case, the two halves of the star formed are symmetrical.

A square has two pairs of parallel lines. This makes it a parallelogram, which is a four-sided polygon with two pairs of parallel sides, each pair being equal in length. A square is a kind of parallelogram whose sides meet at 90 degree angles and are all equal in length.
