The image of point (3,5) when reflected in the yaxis is:
A.(5,3) B.(5,3) C.(3,5) D.(3,5)
Hint: the Y value will be the same and the X value will change signs.
Here is a neat visual that will help you to understand reflections.
Take a sheet of graph paper, draw the x and y axes and plot the point (3,5)
For a reflection in the yaxis, fold your paper along the yaxis and with a pin punch a hole at (3,5).
Note the second hole in the paper, it will be the reflection in the yaxis
For reflections in the xaxis, fold along the xaxis
For reflections in lines such as y = 3x  4, draw the line y=3x = 4 then fold it along that line, etc
