Sum

A point R (3,-2) is reflected in the origin as R'. Point Q (-7, 1) is reflected in the x-axis as Q'. Write down the co-ordinates of R' and Q'. Calculate the distance R' Q'.

#### Solution

R = (3,-2). Therefore, reflection of R in the origin is R' = (-3, 2)

Q = ( -7, 1 ). Therefore, reflection of Q in the x-axis is Q' = ( -7,-1)

Distance between R' Q' = sqrt ((-7-(-3))^2 + (-1-2)^2)

= sqrt ((-4)^2 + (-3)^2)

= sqrt (16 + 9)

= sqrt 25

= 5 units
