Twice Reflecting Over Parallel Lines

Lines y=j and y=k are parallel. E is an arbitrary point between the two lines. Reflect point E over line y=k to create E'. Reflect point E' over line y=j to create E". What is the distance between E and E''? Would your answer change if E were outside of the lines? Explain.
