Graph a triangle (XYZ) and reflect it over the line y=x to create triangle X'Y'Z'. Describe the transformation using words. Draw a line segment from point X to the reflecting line, and then draw a line segment from point X' to the reflecting line. What do you notice about the two line segments you drew? Do you think you would see the same characteristic if you drew the line segment connecting Y with the reflecting line and then Y' with the reflecting line? How do you know?

    so they want you to make up coordinates for X,Y, and Z?

    ok pick a random point that doesn't lie on the line y = x what point did you pick?

    what do you get if you reflected that over the line y = x ?

    reflecting (x,y) over y = x gives you (y,x)

    plot those two points and the line y = x

    then connect those two points with a segment. What do you notice about the line y = x and the segment?

    can you see how the segment is perpendicular to the line?
