i have ideas but struggling to put show as a map? Hint: What is a glide reflection? It is a composition of a rotation and a reflection.

(t o r) perhaps but when i have it for the complex plane would i say r=reflection in some line x=3 perhaps, and translation by i or something? Note the function is the reflection of a complex number through the x-axis. And is a translation of a number by 1 unit to the right. Hence is a glide reflection.
