I get confused about whether a reflection occurs in the x-axis or y-axis.

For example for a hyperbola,

-1/x would be a reflection in the x-axis
1/-x would be a reflection in the y-axis

What if the negative sign was right in between the 1 and the x? I can't type it up but I hope you get what I mean

They're the same thing. Due to the symmetry of 1/x, the negative in front of the entire function vs negative in front of the x is the same thing.
