Assume the x-axis to be a  mirror.
take the image of (1,2) in x-axis i.e(1,-2).
as we know that reflected ray when extended back passes through the image of a point on incident ray i.e reflected ray passes through (1,-2) and (5,3).
...from two point form eqn of refl.ray=5x-4y-13=0.
put y=0 ...point of incidence=(13/5,0).

A ray of light passing through the point P(1,2) reflects on the x-axis at the point A and the reflected ray passes ... ∴m1=-m2. Let coordinates of point A is (a,0). Then, 2-01-a=-3-05-a ... A ray of light coming fromthe point (1, 2) is reflected at a.
