    Interesting how I thought you'd have been able to do this, no sweat :D To get the image when reflected along the y-axis, simply negate the x-coordinates ^.^

    Negate... think of it this way, the image of a point that is reflected across the y-axis is as follows \[\huge (x,y)\rightarrow(-x,y)\]

    or P (2,6) q (-8,2) R (-2,-5) ACTUALLY I THINK ITS THIS ONE @terenzreignz

    It is this one^ Refer to this...\[\huge (x,y)\rightarrow(-x,y)\] I told you, you only negate the x-coordinate, which means, the left one :P

    OK SO (2,-6) Q (-8,2) R (-2,5)
