    axis of symmetry common point

    Hi,

    I need an elementary proof for the following statement:

    if a plane figure has 2 ore more axis of symmetry, they must intersect at a common point for all axis.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello, rargh!

    Can you re-state the problem?
    As written, it doesn't make sense.


    I need an elementary proof for the following statement:

    If a plane figure has 2 or more axis of symmetry,
    . We have ONE plane figure?

    they must intersect at a common point for all axis.
    . We have more than one?

    And I don't understand the phrase "for all axis".

    I think that the OP has one plane figure, with more than 1 axes of symmetry. Those axes must intersect at a common point.

    Hi, sorry if I wasn't clear.

    I mean, there is one plane shape (figure), and it has more than 2 axes of symmetry.

    I need to prove that all the axes of symmetry intersect at a common point.

    Thanks again!
