That would be the product of the matrices of the two operations, done in that order. The first matrix changes x tp -x, and leaves y and z the same. The second matrix changes x to -x, y to -y and z to -z.

The product matrix leaves x unchanged and changes y to -y and z to -z.

The resulting matrix would seem to be

1...0...0

0.. -1..0

0...0..-1
