Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice that you are dealing again with a translation. In this case, all original points are given. A translation to the right is adding a positive number to the xcoordinates. A translation down is subtracting a positive number from the ycoordinate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now I will translate it 5 units to the right and 4 units down. dw:1433180354667:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The translation 5 units right, makes the xcoordinate become 2 + 5 = 7. The translation 4 units down makes the ycoordinate become 5  4 = 1 The translated point is P'(7, 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In your problem, you need to add 4 to every xcoordinate, and subtract 2 from every ycoordinate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is not B. You need to check every original point and every translated point of each choice to find the correct answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(–1, 3), (5, 1), (3, –2), and (–3, 0) Add 4 to each xcoordinate. What is 1 + 4 = 5 + 4 = 3 + 4 = 3 + 4 = Then subtract 2 from each ycoordinate What is 3  2 = 1  2 = 2  2 = 0  2 =
