A pentagon is translated.
Pentagon LMPQR has coordinates L(4,2), M(5,2), P(8,5), Q(6,7), R(2,4). The coordinates of the pentagon after two translations are L’(5,1), M’(4,1), P’(1,4), Q’(3,6), R’(7,3) How was pentagon LMPQR translated to create L’M’P’Q’R’ ?
Look at how each point is shifted to make the new point:
L(4,2) to L’(5,1) was a shift to the left 9 and up 1 M(5,2) to M’(4,1) was a shift to the left 9 and up 1 P(8,5) to P’(1,4) was a shift to the left 9 and up 1 Q(6,7) to Q’(3,6) was a shift to the left 9 and up 1 R(2,4) to R’(7,3) was a shift to the left 9 and up 1 Each xcoordinate is translated 9 units to the left. Each ycoordinate is translated 1 unit up. The pentagon was translated 9 units to the left and 1 unit up. Ask Algebra House
