To describe a particular transformation fully, it means to describe what has happened to shape B to make it into shape A.

In this instance, you would start off your description with "Reflection". Next, you must identify the mirror line which is between shape B and A. Make sure to mark it in. Next, you would write Mirror Line= ?? (We will replace the ?? later). Because all transformations are on graphs with co-ordinates, you will need to work out where your mirror line lies. An example would be, Mirror Line: x=2. This means the mirror line is on the 2nd sector within the X axis.

Hope this makes sense. It probably is a little confusing but with a few drawn examples it would be a lot better to understand.
