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?

This might help explain things, but it will not give you an direct answer: http://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/transformations.html Try the problem after reviewing this website.

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 ?

would it be 1,3

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

(3,2) --> (2,3), yep

plot those two points and the line y = x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
then connect those two points with a segment. What do you notice about the line y = x and the segment?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
did you plot those things on the coordinate grid?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
can you see how the segment is perpendicular to the line?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
and how the line cuts the segment in half?
