Exploring Reflections 4
- Reflection or Reflexion
Considering any one of the line segments you just created, what is the distance between the midpoint and the point on the image? What is the distance between the midpoint and the point on the preimage? You can use the distance tool (you may need to long click on the angle tool to find it) by clicking the two points you'd like the distance between. Do not check your answers until you have finished all of the questions on this page.
Find the equation of the line of reflection. Here's a really big hint: make a line connecting the three midpoints you just created and consider if that line might be a possibility for the line of reflection. Give a fraction answer for your slope and y-intercept, not a decimal approximation.
