   Note: A curve or a plane figure is symmetrical with respect
         to a given line, and a line, surface, or solid with
         respect to a plane, when for each point on one side of
         the line or plane there is a corresponding point on the
         other side, so situated that the line joining the two
         corresponding points is perpendicular to the line or
         plane and is bisected by it. Two solids are symmetrical
         when they are so situated with respect to an
         intervening plane that the several points of their
         surfaces thus correspond to each other in position and
         distance. In analysis, an expression is symmetrical
         with respect to several letters when any two of them
         may change places without affecting the expression; as,
         the expression a^2b + ab^2 + a^2c + ac^2 +
         b^2c + bc^2, is symmetrical with respect to the
         letters a, b, c.

         Sym*met"ric*al*ness, n.
