Nothing whatever except the simplification of your expression!What am I missing?
The diagram is just a rough representation. ABCD is a rectangle with BC = 4 and AB = 6. Points P, Q, and R are different points on a line that is parallel to line AD. Points P and Q are symmetric about line AB and points Q and R are symmetric about line CD. What is the length of line PR?

I know I must be missing something simple... I've tried several things such as triangles using the diagonal of the rectangle. I also tried this:
Let x equal the distance between point Q and line AB.
Let 4-x equal the distance between point Q and line CD.
Any hints? What am I missing?
