Vertical Reflection Definition

A vertical reflection is a reflection in which a plane figure flips over vertically. A vertical reflection has a horizontal axis of reflection. In the case of a vertical reflection given a function of a graph f(x) outputs are changed and the function becomes -f(x). This means y-coordinates are reversed from positive to negative and negative to positive thus reflecting the graph vertically around the x-axis.
