**How do you write a rule for a reflection?**

To write a rule for this reflection you would write: rx−axis(x,y) → (x,−y). Notation Rule A notation rule has the following form ry−axisA → B = ry−axis(x,y) → (−x,y) and tells you that the image A has been reflected across the y-axis and the x-coordinates have been multiplied by -1.

**How do you reflect lines?**

When you reflect a point across the line y = x, the x-coordinate and y-coordinate change places. If you reflect over the line y = -x, the x-coordinate and y-coordinate change places and are negated (the signs are changed). the line y = x is the point (y, x). the line y = -x is the point (-y, -x).
