How is rotational symmetry different from line symmetry?
Line of symmetry does not spin.

Punctuate Correctly

"MUM! where are my favourite socks," I asked yelling for help.
"And where are my Tuesday undies," asked dad searching through his drawers "You know I have to wear them today," 
"Just wear Monday's undies no one is going to know," replied Mum. 
"No ones going to know you say, I'm going to know and to wear Monday's undies pfft that would be idiotic." Dad answered back with a streak in his voice.
This was only the beginning of our family disaster for the next few weeks things were starting to disappear and fast with Dad losing his Tuesday undies and me losing my favourite socks, Isaac then lost his favourite bow tie while mum then lost her favourite dress we thought we were going mental "Its not like they could just hop up and run away," said Isaac. 
Mum suggested that we recap our steps when was the last time you had your items she said we all replied.
"Washing day was the last time we had them so maybe its the washing machine thats caused all this drama." Mum said with a glimpse a hope in her eye.

It was a monday morning I just got woken up by my mum to get ready for school. I got out of bed and reached down for my uniform but it wasn't there. I looked under my bed under my pillows but I couldn't find my uniform anywhere 
"Kaidin have you gotten in the shower yet."
"No mum I cant find my uniform." 
"Well you better find it quick or you will be going to school in your onesie."
"But mum I cant find it anywhere it’s like its just disappeared."
"Oh sure just like all your other stuff huh Kaidin."
I got a note to go to school with to say that my uniform is lost and that I have to wear mufti just for today, which was a pain because every teacher I walked past asked why im in mufti and where my uniform, is so I just showed them the note and moved on. When I got home I went to go grab my IPod from where I always put it but I looked and that wasn't there either I yelled out to my mum Mum have you seen my IPod no but do you know where did you last put it mum if I knew where I last put it do you think i'd be asking you where it is sorry just trying to help.
