Worksheet Overview

Look at the following rectangle drawn on  x and y-coordinate axes.

When we reflect a shape in a mirror line, we reflect each corner in turn.

This is done by moving each point directly to the mirror line and then the same distance beyond.

The result looks like this:

The coordinate (6,2) is reflected to (8,2)

(6,8) is reflected to (8,8)

(4,2) is reflected to (10,2)

(4,8) is reflected to (10,8)

When writing the coordinates, remember to put the brackets around them and always put the x-coordinate first!

Let's start the questions.
