Q:

Is there any formula for finding co ordinates if reflected in a particular line . example (2,3) in x=1 and y=2

A:

Hi Student, 

There is no formula. To answer such a question draw the coordinate plane and plot the point and draw the line x = 1.

While finding the reflection along x = 1, find the horizontal distance of the point from x = 1, and take the same distance to the other side of the line.

You will get the reflected point.

Do the same for the line y = 2. Except here take the vertically distance NOT horizontal.
