Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you read the coordinates of point G as it is now before the translation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK. This is how you read a point of the xy coordinate plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An ordered pair is written in a specific order. We usually write the xcoordinate first, followed by the ycoordinate. x is left and right, the horizontal axis. y is up and down, the vertical axis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The reason an ordered pair is called an ordered pair is that the order makes a difference. You must always read the x value before the y value. Remember, x is left and right. y is up and down.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now you got it. To read pint G, you must first read left and right. dw:1433179541106:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, now that we read point G, we need to do the translation. We are told that the translation is 0 right. Since x is the coordinate that is right or left, that means the xcoordinate remains the same. G(4, 4) > G'(4, )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The rest of the translation is up 5. y is the coordinate that is up and down. Since the translation is 5 up, we add 5 to the ycoordinate. G(4, 4) > G'(4,9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Notice choice C. is exactly the same as the original point G. The coordinates of point G are (4, 4), and choice C. is the same, (4, 4). That would be a translation of 0 right and 0 up, which is no translation at all. The translation is 0 right and 5 up, so the xcoordinate remains the same, and the ycoordinate has 5 added to it.
