We can form another symmetry group by using rotations of a square rather than of a triangle. Start with a square with corners labeled 1 through 4, placed in a reference square. The current position of the inner square is labeled I . We can rotate the inner square clockwise 90 ° to give an element of the group, R 90 . Similarly, we can rotate the square 180 ° or 270 ° to obtain the elements R 180 and R 270 . In addition, we can rotate the square about any of the lines of symmetry shown below. As before, the operation is “followed by," denoted by Δ . Refer to this symmetry group of the square.List each of the eight elements of the group in symbolic notation. For instance, I = ( 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 ) .

To determine

Refer to symmetry group of square and list each of the eight elements of the group in symbolic notation

Explanation

Calculation:

Considering the symmetry group of square, we need to find RlΔRh

Let the original square I as follows

In symbolic notation, the original square is written as

I=(12341234)

The eight elements of the group in symbolic form is as follows:

R90=(12342341)

R180=(12343412)

R270=(
