    congruent=flipping or rotating so that one triangle fits into the other perfectly at the right coordinates.

    Once it's rotated it's impossible to make it congruent by rotating try it out yourself

    Reflection means the triangle is being mirrored, so it looks exactly like the original only backwards. A translation means you're just moving the triangle to a new position on the plane. Kinda like translating a language; you're saying the same thing only in a different language. A dilation is like enlarging or shrinking an image, or in this case a triangle.

    Sorry I have to go. Rotation, reflection and translation will get you a congruent triangle. so pick the one that has neither of those

    For instance forced out of stage=despite resistance(electromagnetism) of that performer he was applied a force and hence he acquired unbalanced net force which made him quite the stage

    Hi, I'm just hoping I can give a more clear understanding for you. In linear geometry, if you have y=ax, 'a' is the dilation factor. Hence in y=x, the dilation factor is 1. The graph looks something like this. |dw:1439600803958:dw|
