Just my 2c here
For the mirror of x= -y
Just grab the R (-3,1) and do exactly what equation tells you to do
That is

x = -y. So -3 is now 'y' coordinate 3. Likewise, 1 = -1 for 'x' coordinate
So we end up with (-1,3)

y axis should be straightforward

Always keep into consideration signs for each quadrant for sanity check

I. ++
II. -+
III. +-
IV. -+

Hope it helps
Cheers!

There are several ways to solve this one, but the easiest one would be just to draw the diagram. y=-x is the diagonal line through the origin with the negative slope. The coordinates of S would be (-1, 3) and the coordinates of T (1, 3).

Please would you mind further elaborating why coordinates of S would be (-1, 3) - I am a little retard with coord geo.

We get these points by drawing the diagram with line y = -x and point (-3, 1). By looking at it, you'd be able to eliminate the wrong answers and getting the right one.
