Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let be that the point b is (h,k). Then mid point of B and A should lie on the line (x +y) = 6 hence (h + 3) + (k 2) = 12 also slope of AB should be perp to line's = slope of AB is 1 k + 2 = h  3 solve both to get h = 9, k = 4 (9,4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the other part let image of p be q (h,k) again same thing (k +1)/2 = (h+2)/2+2 and (h2) = (k1) solve and get (1,4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. But if I use a graph paper, I don't get the same answer as you. I got (8,3) for the first question. Why is that? :O The second one is right.
