## How do you translate a shape with coordinates?

In the coordinate plane we can draw the translation if we know the direction and how far the figure should be moved. To translate the point P(x,y) , a units right and b units up, use P'(x+a,y+b) .

**How do you translate shapes?**

In geometry translation means moving a shape into a different position, without changing it in any way. In Year 5 children are introduced to shape translation by giving them shapes on squared paper; they then need to be moved a certain number of squares up, down, left or right.

**How do you translate a figure?**

In geometry, a translation is the shifting of a figure from one place to another without rotating, reflecting or changing its size. This is done by moving the vertices of the figure the prescribed number of spaces on a coordinate plane and then drawing the new figure.

### How do you transform a shape?

There are different kinds of transformation.

- Rotation is when the shape is turned around a point.
- Reflection is when a shape is reflected in a mirror line.
- Translation is when a shape is moved a certain distance from its original position.

**What are the basic 2 transformations write there transformation matrix?**

There are two shear transformations X-Shear and Y-Shear. One shifts X coordinates values and other shifts Y coordinate values.

**How do you translate a shape?**

The translation of a shape will move it up, down, left or right but the dimensions and appearance of the shape will stay the same. In order to correctly translate a shape, each point must move at an equal distance. It’s important to note that if a shape is made larger or smaller or is rotated this is not translation.

A translation moves a shape. Every point of the shape is moved in the same direction by the same distance. Cartesian coordinates can be used to translate a shape. Cartesian coordinates are used to describe the position of a point on a graph.

#### How to translate a shape on a coordinate grid using vector?

– Owlcation How to translate a shape on a coordinate grid using a vector. Math help. If you are asked to translate a shape then you need to move the shape to a new position on the coordinate grid. Usually, the directions of the translation are given in terms of a vector.

**How do you translate a shape using Cartesian coordinates?**

Translating a shape using Cartesian coordinates is easy. Translate the shape below using the column vector. Let us start by choosing a point on the shape and translating it. We will translate point A . Find the Cartesian coordinates of the point. In our example, the Cartesian coordinates the point A is (1, 3) .

**How do you find the direction of translation?**

Usually, the directions of the translation are given in terms of a vector. The vector contains 2 numbers which are written vertically (instead of horizontally like a coordinate). The top number of the vector tells you if you are moving the shape left or right.
