1. The answer is B because u just had this question the other day 😀

2. Hi there!

The answer to your question is B my explanation is below

The coordinates of the vertices of the final image will be:

A”(-6, 8), B”(-7, -2), and C”(0, -2)

Hence, option (B) is true.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the triangle with the vertices

A(-1, -8)B(-2, 2)C(5, 2)We know that when we reflect a point across the x-axis, the x-coordinate remains the same, but the y-coordinate reverses its sign.

Thus,

The rule of reflection across the x-axis:

(x, y) → (x, -y)

so

A(-1, -8) → A'(-1, -(-8)) = A'(-1, 8)

B(-2, 2) → B'(-2, -2) = B'(-2, -2)

C(5, 2) → C'(5, -2) = C'(5, -2)

Then, translate the new triangle 5 units to the left

Rule of translating 5 units to the left

(x, y) → (x-5, y)

so

A'(-1, 8) → A”(-1-5, 8) = A”(-6, 8)

B'(-2, -2) → B”(-2-5, -2) = B”(-7, -2)

C'(5, -2) → C”(5-5, -2) = C”(0, -2)

Therefore, the coordinates of the vertices of the final image will be:

A”(-6, 8), B”(-7, -2), and C”(0, -2)

Hence, option (B) is true.
