**Solution:**

The co-ordinates of P reflected in the origin will be P ( -a, -b).

Again the co-ordinates of image of P’ under reflection in the y-axis is rule be (a, -b).

But the co-ordinates of P’ are given as (4, 6)

a = 4, -b = 6 ⇒ b = -6

**Question 11.**

**The point P (x, y) is first reflected in the x- axis and then reflected in the origin to P’. If P’ has co-ordinates ( -8, 5); evaluate x and y.**

**Solution:**

The co-ordinates of P reflected to the x-axis will be (x, -y)

and its coordinate will be reflected in the origin P (-x, y).

But the co-ordinates of P’ are (-8, 5)

-x = -8 => x = 8

y = 5

**Question 12.**

**Solution:**

In ∆ABC. co-ordinates of vertices.

A are (2. 6), B ( -3. 5) and C (4, 7).

Then the co-ordinates of vertices of ∆A’B’C’ when reflected in the y-axis will be A’ ( -2, 6). B’ (3, 5) and C’ ( -4, 7).

Again the co-ordinates of vertices of ∆A”B”C” when reflected in the origin will be A” (2, -6), B” ( -3, -5) and C”(4, -7).

(ii) The reflection of ∆ABC is in x-axis.

**Question 15.**

**P and Q have co-ordinates (-2, 3) and (5, 4) respectively. Reflect P in the x-axis to P’ and Q in the y-axis to Q’. State the co-ordinates of P’ and Q’.**

**Solution:**

Co-ordinates of P is ( -2, 3) and co-ordinates of Q (5, 4).

Then the co-ordinates of P’ when reflected in x-axis will be (-2, -3)

and the co-ordinates of Q’ when reflected in y-axis will be (-5, 4)

**Question 16.**

**On a graph paper, plot the triangle ABC whose vertices are at the points A (3,1), B (5,0) and C (7,4). On the same diagram, draw the image of the triangle ABC under reflection in the origin 0 (0, 0).**

**Solution:**

∆ABC whose vertices are A (3, 1), B (5, 0) and C (7, 4).

Now the image of ∆ABC is ∆A’B’C’ under reflection in the origin O (0, 0).

The co-ordinates of the vertice A’, B’ and C’ will be A’ ( -3, -1), B’ (- 5, 0) and C’ ( -7, -4) as shown on the graph.

**Question 17.**

**Find the image of point (4, -6) under the following operations :**

**Solution:**

Since the co-ordinates of a given point are (4, -6), then

**Question 18.**

**Point A (4, -1) is reflected as A’ in the y- axis. Point B on reflection in the x-axis is mapped as B’ ( -2, 5). Write the co-ordinates of A’ and B.**

**Solution:**

A’ is the reflection of point A (4, -1) in the y-axis and its co-ordinates will be (-4, -1)

Co-ordinates of B’, the image of point B are ( -2, 5) in the x-axis.

Co-ordinates of B will be ( -2, -5)

**Question 19.**

**The point (-5, 0) on reflection in a line is mapped as (5, 0) and the point (-2, -6) on reflection in the same line is mapped as (2, -6).**

**(a) Name the line of reflection.**

**(b) Write the co-ordinates of the image of (5, -8) in the line obtained in (a).**

**Solution:**

(a) The point (-5, 0) is reflected in a line as (5, 0)

Here, x is mapped as -x

Again point (-2, -6) is mapped in the reflection of the same line as (2, -6)

Here x is mapped as -x

The line of reflection will be y-axis

(b) Now the co-ordinates of the image of the point (5, -8) in the same line will be (-5, -8)
