1)

Find what type of transformation can be defined as moving a figure to a new location

with no change to the size or shape of the figure.

The figure moves translation to did not change to the size or shape of the figure.

3)

A translation of the quadrilateral is at

Observe the graph,

The quadrilateral is moves units to the right and units up of a translation of the quadrilateral.

4)

Find the translation.

The translation the point .

Find true or false of the translation point will become

Consider translation will become

The translation is moves 6 units right and 8 units down then .

Translation of the is .

Thus,

The translation point is then, the point is moves 12 units left and 4 units down.

Translation will become

False.

5)

Translate on

Find the translation be located.

Observe the graph,

The graph the points are

Translate of

Graph the translation points are

Option c is right choice.

6)

A reflection is a type of transformation that turns the figure clockwise or counter-clockwise

but did not change the figure and its change to poistion of the figure.

True.

7)

Real life example of a reflection..

look in a mirror.

The positioning of objects in the mirror is a reflection of the objects in the real world.

2)

Going down a water slide is a real-life example of a translation.

False.

Since, Looking in a mirror because nothing has actually moved is a translation.

8)

The sets of points are

Find the reflections of each other across the y-axis.

Reflection across the y-axis is represents the change of sign to y-axis point.

The set point is is the reflection across the y-axis.

9)

Observe the figure,

Triangle is reflected across line

Here, consider the line is the middle line of the triangle.

Then image is reflected about y-axis.

The new coordinates are
