    Use mid point formula.

    But don't you need more than one coordinate?

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

    you know x1 and y1 find x2 and y2

    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.

    Then take the given point as the first point in the case i.e (-5,7)

    now use x1=-5 and y1=7

    now use the formula that I have already posted

    Wait, so wouldn't it be (-5,-7)?
