The definition of a side or edge is a line connecting two vertices or points. An

**oval does**not**have**any straight lines, only**curves**so it**does**not**have**any sides.

Moreover, how many angles does an oval have?

They **have** three sides and three **angles**, but they can look **different** from one another.

**symmetry**, but this is not required.

Accordingly, what is the shape of an oval?

**Oval**. An **oval** is a curve resembling a squashed circle but, unlike the **ellipse**, without a precise mathematical definition. The word **oval** derived from the Latin word "ovus" for egg. Unlike ellipses, ovals sometimes have only a single axis of reflection symmetry (instead of two).

But in practical usage, it ranges from “being close to a circle” to “having no sharp angles.” So an **oval** that approaches a circle in dimension will definitely be **considered round**, but an **oval** that approaches a line will be **considered round** by almost nobody.
