@HWBUSTER00 Is there more information to solve your question? It seems incomplete to me :/

- anonymous

No that is the total question.. i dont understand it ?

- Owlcoffee

Maybe it's the line composed by those two points.

- GreenCat

@HWBUSTER00 Are you asking for the distance?

- anonymous

@TheSmartOne i haven't been spaming i have been asking questions

- anonymous

this question is about Translations and Reflections....and this is the full question What is T(-6, 5) (-1, -2)? @Owlcoffee @TheSmartOne @GreenCat

- GreenCat

@logan6767 irrelevant questions

- GreenCat

@HWBUSTER00 I think it is asking for the translation from one point to the other.

- anonymous

what are you gonna due about it flutterer

- anonymous

I have no idea ....@GreenCat

- anonymous

@GreenCat

- pooja195

The question doesnt make sense

- anonymous

i think the reason you are not getting an answer is because it is entirely unclear what \[T(-6, 5) (-1, -2)
\] means

- anonymous

what @pooja195 said

- GreenCat

I think you just show the number of units that the point is translated.
@HWBUSTER00 Are there an answer choices?

- anonymous

lol .. I agree it does not make sence but my teacher would not have given me this question that cannot be answered . @satellite73 @pooja195 and @GreenCat no this is a written answer

- pooja195

I think there is info missing

- jim_thompson5910

I think they're trying to say
"Apply the translation (x,y) -> (x-6, y+5) to the point (-1,-2)"
just a guess though

- anonymous

i have to find T . What is T?

- jim_thompson5910

T is just shorthand notation for "translation"

- jim_thompson5910

if my guess is correct, then they want you to shift the point 6 units left, 5 units up

- anonymous

so. it wants me to say if it went up,down,left or right

- jim_thompson5910

it wouldn't let me so i copied and pasted

- jim_thompson5910

have a look at this page
http://www.regentsprep.org/regents/math/geometry/gt2/Trans.htm

- jim_thompson5910

notice how they use the notation \[\Large T_{a,b}(x,y) = (x+a, y+b)\]

ok that's what I was thinking

- jim_thompson5910

that just means "shift the point (-1,-2) six units to the left and 5 units up"

- anonymous

so is it (1,-4) ??

3

- jim_thompson5910

that's part of it

- anonymous

4,3

- jim_thompson5910

|dw:1435195952264:dw|

- jim_thompson5910

the 4 is incorrect

- anonymous

5,3

- jim_thompson5910

-1 - 6 is NOT equal to 5

- jim_thompson5910

think of -1 - 6 as -(1+6)

- anonymous

oh -5

- jim_thompson5910

-1 - 6 = -(1+6) = -(7) = -7

- jim_thompson5910

-1 - 6 = (1 dollar of debt) + (6 dollars of debt) = 7 dollars of debt

- anonymous

oh.....-7,3

- anonymous

im having a slow moment sorry

- jim_thompson5910

that's fine

- jim_thompson5910

yes the final point is (-7, 3)

- anonymous

omg..thank you !

- jim_thompson5910

you're welcome
