Observe parallelogram ABCD plotted on the coordinate plane below.
Part I: Provide the coordinates of a parallelogram A’B’C’D’ that is congruent to parallelogram ABCD. Explain why these figures are congruent. (4 points)
Part II: Provide the coordinates of a parallelogram A’’B’’C’’D’’ that is similar to parallelogram ABCD. Explain why these figures are similar. (6 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know what a Dilation and Translation is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0translation is it when you move the figure to the opposite side from where it is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And what about a dilation, rajfk?

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Translation isn't the opposite side one. Isn't reflection the one that you described?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i do not know that one Darlin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's when the figure gets bigger or smaller by a certain factor.

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So anyway, translation is when you add random numbers to both x and y. An example of that would be (x,y)> (x+1,y+3)

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Dilation is when something gets smaller or bigger by a constant like Darlin said. An example, if the constant is 2 would be (x,y)>(2x,2y)

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for the first part, translations make geometric objects stay congruent

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because the distances are all still the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i get that part now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Couldn't have said it better myself :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you find the coordinates for all 4 points and add or subtract whatever you want to them to get the first part

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Shift all the points one column to the right if you're feeling lazy

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For the second part, what you want to do is get the coordinates and multiply x and y by 2. Then you plot the new coordinates you found

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lazy doesn't get u anywhere.... I know that from experience, but it can work. Just make sure you double check your work...

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Lazy gets you somewhere if you're good at it. But that's just for math. I fell asleep for the math placement test and got double period algebra. But I got an 100 average for it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Are you done? Or do you still need me?

DarlingDare

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can't you do a proportion for the second part to see that they are similar?

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, yeah. But that's just for checking it. You would be guessing and checking to get the coordinates

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay. Raj. Give me the coordinates for point A I'm too lazy to find it

DarlingDare

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm... good to know... then I have been doing that part wrong for a long time.....

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright. You're taking too long to find it for me. so A is (7,3). What you do is make up a random constant like 2. So (x,y)>(2x,2y), right?

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So then you plug x and y in to get (2[7],2[3]) or (14,6)

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which means that A11 is (14,6). Understand?

DarlingDare

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I understood, but I don't know if Raj did...
