  • When we hold a page of a book in front of the mirror, the image of the words appear laterally inverted.
  • The image of every point of the word is formed behind the mirror at the same distance from the mirror
  • Because of this the left and right side of the image is interchanged.
  • Hence, if we hold a page of a book in front of a mirror, we see laterally inverted letters in the mirror.
