5. Quadrilateral UVWX is reflected over the x-axis to form quadrilateral U′V′W′X′.

If vertex U is located at (-4, 5) and vertex V is located at (-6, 2), then vertex U′ is located at 

(-4, 5)

(4, -5)

(-4, -5)

(4, 5) 

and vertex V′ is located at 

(-6, -2)

(6, 2)

(6, -2)

(-6, 2).

Answer: Quadrilateral UVWX is reflected over the x-axis to form quadrilateral U′V′W′X′.

If vertex U is located at (-4, 5) and vertex V is located at (-6, 2), then vertex U′ is located at (-4, -5) and vertex V′ is located at (-6, -2).
