I'm assuming it's the same function as before. Would you say that function is symmetric?
Im 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??
Ok, what function is it the assignment wants you to plot the point (-6,1) in?
What function?? The question states: Plot each point, and then plot the points that are symetric to the given point with respect to the (a) x-axis (b) y axis (c) origin. The points that are given (-6,1)
Im sorry if I am not being clear.. kinda confused.
Aha, 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 x-axis 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.
This is much easier then I make it sound... You just find the points "twin sister" at the other side of the x-axis, y-axis and the origin.
So... 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..
First point: (-6,1). Second point (symmetric with respect to x-axis): (-6,-1) Third point (symmetric with respect to y-axis): (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.
Is (0,0) the orgin???
(0,0) is the origin, yes, how would the point (-6,1) be symmetric with regard to the origin?
Or ( 6, -1)
That'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. :)
Thank you Thank you! I think I understand!!!
Good, glad to help :)
