Show $_p*$_l*$_p*$_l*$_p*$_l*$_p is a reflection in a line parallel to line l
note $_p is a reflection about the line p© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 30, 2021, 12:01 am ad1c9bdddf
We can suppose the line l is the x-axis. For the line p, we have two cases.
Case 1: line p is parallel to line l, we can suppose p has the equation y=c. Then for any point (a,b), we have $_l(a,b)=(a,-b) and $_p(a,b)=(a,2c-b). Thus we ...
This shows how to prove that a transformation is a reflection.
