    mirror being mid point of the line joining the two points. \[\left\{ -5,11 \right\}\] now \[-5=\frac{x2-x1 }{ 2 }\] and \[11=\frac{ y2-y1 }{ 2 }\]

    I completely understand what you're saying, but I honestly have no idea how to solve for x2 and y2. I remember learning this, but I haven't used it in 2 years.
