Guessing the Symmetry Group

This Demonstration provides a game of guessing the group of symmetries of a plane figure. There are two types of symmetry groups of a regular -gon, dihedral (D) and cyclic (C). A dihedral group is a collection of rotations and reflections (flips); a cyclic group contains only rotations.
