## Reflection of a point - ISI MStat Year 2019 PSA Question 14

The reflection of the point (1,2) with respect to the line is

**Key Concepts**

## Check the Answer

Answer: is (5,10)

ISI MStat 2019 PSA Problem 14

Precollege Mathematics

## Try with Hints

Find an algorithm to find the reflection,

Find the line perpendicular to through (1,2).

Find the point of intersection.

Use Midpoint Segment Result.

The line perpendicular to is of the form .Now it passes through (1,2) . So,

Hence the line perpendicular to through (1,2) is y=2x.

Now we will find point of intersection (Foot of Perpendicular )

(3,6) is the point of intersection i.e the foot of perpendicular.

Use Mid-Point Formula (special case of Section formula) to get required point (Foot of perpendicular is **mid-point** of reflection and original point)

Therefore the reflection point is (5,10) .
