On a coordinate grid, point P is at (5, 8) and point R is at (−1, −3). Points Q and S are a reflection of both points across the xaxis.
What are the coordinates of Q and S?
Q(−5, 8), S(1, −3)
Q(5, −8), S(−1, 3)
Q(−5, −8), S(1, 3)
Q(−5, 8), S(−1, 3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. Note that the xcoordinate doesn't change...just the ycoordinate. Try again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Fair enough. However, I think I've explained that you just need to change the sign on the ycoordinates to get the correct answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's therefore the third one. @ospreytriple had explained it well enough.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that reflection across the x axis results in change of the sign for both coordinates. On the other hand, reflection across the y axis results in change of only the x value.
