R3 Symmetric Matrices

Week 3: Symmetric Matrices

Give a useful application of symmetry in real-life.
One useful application of symmetry in real-life is on how living things use the symmetry of shapes. An example would be on how bees’ use symmetry to make their honeycomb. By using hexagons, a symmetric shape, mathematicians believe that they maximize the amount of honey that they produce using the least amount of wax.
