    The coordinates of the point R are (a,b) where a>5 and b>5
    The point T is the reflection of the point R in the line y=1.
    Find the coordinates of the point T in terms of a and b.

    could someone please explain this to me?
    Thanks!

    Please reattach the question the right way up. It's easier for you to do this than it will be for every person who reads this thread.

    Also please tell us what you have tried and post all your working.

    It's okay. Now you just need to post what you've tried so that notnek can see where you went wrong or are struggling.

    Try some values for a and b e.g. a = 6 and b = 7. So draw a diagram showing the point (6,7) and then draw the line y = 1 on the same diagram.

    What are the coordinates of the reflected point?

    Then maybe try another point. You may be able to see what the reflected point would be for any 'a' and 'b'.
