Answer:
The coordinates of A'(8,5)
Stepbystep explanation:
we know that
When you reflect a point across the line y = x, the xcoordinate and ycoordinate change places
so
The rule of the reflection across the line y=x is
(x,y) > (y,x)
we have the point A(5,8)
Applying the rule of the reflection across the line y=x
A(5,8) > A'(8,5)
