## Exploring Reflections

**Look at the reflection below.**

- What is the line of reflection?
- What do you notice about the distance A is from the axis and the distance A' is from the axis? Is this the same for the other points?
- What do you notice about the coordinates of the preimage and the image?

**Move the point (0, -2) from the line of reflection to (2, 0).**

## Writing the Line of Reflection (Example 8)

**What is the line of reflection?**Use the point and line tools to help you find the line of reflection. When you are done, check the Mirror line box to check your work.
