## How do you reflect a mirror line?

Reflecting a shape simply means to flip it over a mirror line. Each point in the shape is moved to the other side of the mirror line but remains the same distance away from the line. The reflected image will now be facing in the opposite direction to the original object.

### How do you describe a reflection in the line?

A reflection is a transformation that acts like a mirror: It swaps all pairs of points that are on exactly opposite sides of the line of reflection. The line of reflection can be defined by an equation or by two points it passes through.

**How do you reflect?**

If you have found yourself making these same excuses, you can become more reflective by practicing a few simple steps.

- Identify some important questions. But don’t answer them yet.
- Select a reflection process that matches your preferences.
- Schedule time.
- Start small.
- Do it.
- Ask for help.

**How do you describe a mirror transformation?**

A reflection is a type of transformation. It ‘maps’ one shape onto another. When a shape is reflected a mirror image is created. If the shape and size remain unchanged, the two images are congruent.

## What is the difference between a line of reflection and a line of symmetry?

A line of symmetry is a line that can be drawn to divide a figure into equal halves. A figure has line symmetry or reflection symmetry when it can be divided into equal halves that match. A figure has reflection symmetry if it can be reflected across a line and look exactly the same as it did before the reflection.

### Why is the line of reflection important?

What is important to note is that the line of reflection is the perpendicular bisector between the preimage and the image. Thus ensuring that a reflection is an isometry, as Math Bits Notebook rightly states.

**How do you use patty paper for rotations?**

Place your pencil on origin, (0,0), the center of rotation, and rotate the figure the indicated direction and number of degrees. Gently pick up the corner of your patty paper to see where to draw the new image. Label all new points using appropriate prime notation.
