Graph a triangle (LMN) and reflect it over the line y=x to create triangle L'M'N'. Describe the transformation using words. Draw a line segment from point L to the reflecting line, and then draw a line segment from point L' 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 M with the reflecting line and then M' with the reflecting line? How do you know?

    it doesn't matter, it just says to draw any triangle LMN

    Okay, but what does this mean "Describe the transformation using words"

    describe what happens to the triangle after you reflect it across y= x

    So I must draw a graph and plot it out?

    reflect the points across the line y = x

    okay I think i'm understanding it

    hint: to reflect the point (x,y) across the y-axis, switch the x and y-coordinates example: (5,4) becomes (4,5)

    so, if L = (1,3), L' = ?

    so L' is (3,1). draw this point and label it L' (don't forget the dash)

    I drew it on paper. I'm new to open study and don't know how to draw it on here.
