Transformations- Open Middle Problem


List 3 points that create a right triangle with an area of 6, staying within the axis provided below (-10 < x < 10, -10 < y < 10).  Rotate your triangle and reflect it across an Axis.  List the three new points.


Write down the steps you used to create your transformation.

Find another set of transformations that gives the same result as your original one.

(This can create a great number of variations: types of polygons, translations, reflections and rotations)

**This type of problem is a bit too open-ended for Open Middle, typically you strive to come to only one answer or a small set of  correct answers, I purposefully left this problem a bit open-ended for my blog**
