Help! I'm currently doing a Geometry exam and got stuck on a question. I don't need an answer, just a clarification. Part of the question asks to "Draw a line segment from point L to the reflecting line, and then draw a line segment from point L' to the reflecting line." I'm not sure what the reflecting line is, can someone please clarify? If you need me to type the full question for a better understanding let me know :)

    Each point of a reflected image is the same distance from the line of reflection as the corresponding point of the original figure. In other words, the line of reflection lies directly in the middle between the figure and its image -- it is the perpendicular bisector of the segment joining any point to its image.
