Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from annafe, a student:

why do you think that when you look at the mirror your face is just the same as what it is,while when you read messages on the mirror,it is in inverse?

Close your left eye and look in the mirror. Does the face in the mirror have the left eye close (just the same as you) or the right eye (inverse)?
