Q:
# Which statement accurately describes how to reflect point A (3, ?1) over the y-axis? Construct a line from A parallel to the x-axis, determine the distance from A to the x-axis along this parallel line, find a new point on the other side of the x-axis that is equidistant from the x-axis. Construct a line from A perpendicular to the y-axis, determine the distance from A to the y-axis along this perpendicular line, find a new point on the other side of the y-axis that is equidistant from the y-axis. Construct a line from A perpendicular to the x-axis, determine the distance from A to the x-axis along this perpendicular line, find a new point on the other side of the x-axis that is equidistant from the x-axis. Construct a line from A parallel to the y-axis, determine the distance from A to the y-axis along this parallel line, find a new point on the other side of the y-axis that is equidistant from the y-axis as A is.

A:

Answer:Construct a line from A perpendicular to the y-axis, determine the distance from A to the y-axis along this perpendicular line, find a new point on the other side of the y-axis that is equidistant from the y-axisStep-by-step explanation:we know thatThe rule of the reflection of a point over the y-axis is equal toA(x,y) ----->A'(-x,y)soThe y-coordinate of both points is the same and the distance from A to the y-axis is equal to the distance from A' to the y-axis (is equidistant)
