Questions & Answers

Q: What are the two points defining the quadrilateral in the video?

The two points are (0, 9) and (3, 4).

Q: How is the line y = 3 - x related to the reflection of the quadrilateral?

The quadrilateral is left unchanged after reflection over the line y = 3 - x.

Q: How can we determine the other two vertices of the quadrilateral?

By reflecting the given vertices across the line y = 3 - x, we find the additional vertices.

Q: What is the final classification of the quadrilateral?

The quadrilateral is classified as a trapezoid, as it has one pair of parallel sides.
