(Solved) : Two Flat Mirrors Have Their Reflecting . . .

Two flat mirrors have their reflecting surfaces facing each other, with the edge of one mirror in contact with an edge of the other, so that the angle between the mirrors is a. When an object is placed between the mirrors, a number of images are formed. In general, if the angle % is such that na = 360°, where n is an integer, the number of images formed is n – 1. Graphically, find all the image positions for the case n = 6 when a point object is between the mirrors (but not on the angle bisector).
