Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just compare one point on the original WXYZ with the corresponding point on the translated shape. So if you pick W on the original shape, pick W' on the new shape. W original is (2,1) W' is (5,5) The x coordinate is 3 more, and the y coordinate is 4 more. To double check, see if the "3 more for x, 4 more for y" works for other pairs of points like X and X', Y and Y', and Z and Z'.
