## Use the coordinate plane above to answer this question:

To translate the triangle input the numbers as follows: (x+**3**, y+**2**). Then click "Translate". Which phrase * best describes *the motion of triangle ABC?

## Use the coordinate plane above to answer this question:

To translate the triangle input the numbers as follows: (x+**1**, y+**5**). Then click "Translate". Which phrase * best describes *the motion of triangle ABC?

What type of number did you input to make the triangle shift left?

Which value did you work with to make the triangle shift left ? Make sure your answer is in lower case.

Which value did you work with to make the triangle shift down? Make sure your answer is in lower case.

## Use the Coordinate Plane below for the following question:

What translation is needed to shift Triangle ABC to its image, triangle A'B'C', with coordinates of A'(-1, 3), B'(3, 0), and C'(2, -5)?
