Sarah was sitting in a seat at a baseball game when another ticket holder showed her she was in the wrong seat. The other ticket holder kindly told Sarah she needed to go 5 rows down and 3 seats to the right. Which rule describes the translation needed to put Sarah in the correct seat? I think I know the answer: (x,y) (x5, y+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If this is related to function notation, then the translation would actually be (x3, y5), since a common property of functions suggests if you have a function f(x), then altering the function to f(x+A) means that you shift the function towards the right A units. Likewise, altering the function to f(xA) means that you shift the function towards the left A units. You can check this by picking any function and seeing where the vertex shifts when you shift the graph left or right, then plugging into the function to see.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But if it's not related to function notation, then just disregard that. This kind of problem makes me think function notation, though.
