    Ok, first of all, you are trying to reflect the image across x=3.

    x=3 is a vertical line. Do you agree?

    Think more carefully, the image is being reflected across the line. So imagine placing a mirror along the x=3 vertical line.

    If the image is being reflected across a vertical line, would any of your y coordinates change?

    So your reflected image of X is (7, 5)
