Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm assuming it's the same function as before. Would you say that function is symmetric?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im not sure what you are asking? What my teacher taught was how to find it in an equation... not just two points so I dont even know where to begin??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, what function is it the assignment wants you to plot the point (6,1) in?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What function?? The question states: Plot each point, and then plot the points that are symetric to the given point with respect to the (a) xaxis (b) y axis (c) origin. The points that are given (6,1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aha, ok. Well, what you do is this: Make your own coordinate plane, locate the point (6,1), put a dot there to represent it. Then try to find the dot on the other side of the xaxis that has the same position as the (6,1) has. The point will have different values (x,y) but it will be at a equivalent position, but in another quadrant in the coordinate system.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is much easier then I make it sound... You just find the points "twin sister" at the other side of the xaxis, yaxis and the origin.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So... I have no idea, what to do. I'm looking for three other points correct?? (6,1) is that one of them?? How would I even find something on the origin?? Sorry again..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First point: (6,1). Second point (symmetric with respect to xaxis): (6,1) Third point (symmetric with respect to yaxis): (6,1) Can you find the fourth point? :) Remember, do this on a piece of paper in your own correctly scaled coordinate system. Mark each point, and consider them, think about why they are symmetric with respect to each axis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is (0,0) the orgin???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(0,0) is the origin, yes, how would the point (6,1) be symmetric with regard to the origin?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's correct, if you now draw a line between the points in your coordinate system. You will see a nice symmetry and it should form a rectangular box and you're done. :)
