Translations of Polygons
Translating a Triangle
Click point B on the triangle above. Drag it 3 points to the RIGHT and 1 point UP. (x, y) --> (x + 3, y + 1). Write the coordinates for A', B', and C' below:
Click point B' on the triangle above. Drag it to the point (2, -1). Which translation below accurately describes the translation between Triangle ABC and Triangle A'B'C'?
Drag B' above so that it is once again at point (0, 0). Now perform the following transformation: (x, y) --> (x - 1, y + 3) Write the coordinates for A'B'C' below:
