## Re: What does the problem mean?

Hello, rcs!

The points P(2, 1) and Q(5, 4) are reflected with respect to the yaxis.

What is the area of the figure formed by the two points and their reflections?

Think of the*y*-axis as a*mirror.*

Code:| | (-2,1) | (2,1) P* - - - + - - - *P' : | : --+---+---+---+---+-- -2 -1 | 1 2 |
