Q:
# Given the point (β5, 2), write the coordinates of a point that is related by a reflection over the x- or y-axis. Specify which axis is the line of symmetry.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:If we reflect the point (-5,2) over the x-axis (line of simetry) the reflcted point is (-5,-2).If we reflect the point (-5,2) over the y-axis (line of simetry) the reflcted point is (5,2).Step-by-step explanation:The point (-5,2) is plotted as red in the picture attached.To reflect a point over the x-axis, x value must be the same and the y value mus be the opposite. The result is (-5,-2) and is plotted as a blue point.To reflect a point over the x-axis, y value must be the same and the x value mus be the opposite. The result is (5,2) and is plotted as a green point.
