Quadrilateral ABCD is located at A(−2, 2), B(−2, 4), C(2, 4), and D(2, 2). The quadrilateral is then transformed using the rule (x − 2, y + 8) to form the image A'B'C'D'. What are the new coordinates of A', B', C', and D'? Describe what characteristics you would find if the corresponding vertices were connected with line segments.
i dont understand the last part can someone explain
I wish I could help but I'm not good at this stuff @malcolmmcswain could you help them?
mal may be able to help you :D
Ok, so here's what you want to do.
So, A.B,C,D are one coordinate and 'A,'B,'C,'D are reflective from A,B,C,D
i dont understand this part : Describe what characteristics you would find if the corresponding vertices were connected with line segments.
For the quadrilateral, take every value of x, and subtract it by 2, and take every value of y and add it by 8... do you understand that?
Ok, so what the question is asking is if you take every point on the new quadrilateral, and draw a line from there to the original point, what will you see?
i dont understand
Here is a drawing to help you see |dw:1450384311965:dw|
Supposing they are parallel, would they be parallel for every other basic transformation?
Correct. They are all parallel. Anything else you notice?
ya thank for you help mid one more?
Hold on. There is one other thing. The lines are all parallel, but they are also all the same length. I think that's the answer your teacher was looking for. As for your next question, open a new one and tag me.
