Relections

We can reflect shapes on a coordinate grid using a rule.

Take a look at the image below.

reflect math example

Take a look at point B.  Initially the point B if found at (2,4).  Two on the X-axis and 4 on they Y-axis.  When we reflect the shape, we need to keep the rule: point b needs to be located at value for 2 on the x-axis and four points downward from the 0 line.  So our new value for point B is X:2 and Y: -4.
