## List Rotational Symmetries

List all rotational symmetries for a **REGULAR OCTAGON**. Separate each measurement with a comma. You may use an " * " or "d" to represent degrees. IE: 360 degrees, should be entered as 300* or 300d. You may also use the function editor to insert a degree symbol " ° ".
