# Key Vocabulary

**\(\triangle 2\) is not the reflection of \(\triangle 1\) because:**

- The two triangles are not congruent.

- The triangles are not equal distances from the line of reflection.

**Steps to draw the correct image:**

1) Draw a perpendicular line from \(A\) to the line of reflection and extend the line beyond the line

of reflection.

2) Measure the distance from \(A\) to the line of reflection. \(A’\) will be the same distance on the other side of the line of reflection.

3) To find \(B’\) and \(C’\), repeat steps \(1\) and \(2\) for \(B\) and \(C\).

4) Join the vertices of \(A’\), \(B’\) and \(C’\) to draw the image.

- Think of the properties of reflections.
- What do you know about the size of a figure and its reflection?
- What can you say about the distance of a figure and its reflection from the line of reflection?
