 Click here to see ALL problems on Linear-equations Question 253977: I don't know how I can show a graph on here, but I have a math problem that shows a triange RST graphed on a coordinate grid. The best I can do is tell what the points of the triangl are R is (-5, -2) S is (-2, -6) T is (-6, -5) Now Part A On the coordinate grid above, graph R'S'T, the image of triange RST after a translation of 8 units to the right. What I believe I have to do is take the point of S (-2, -6) which is the point closest to the right in the grid and just count over 8 units. That would mean that S would be be (6, -6). Then I would move the T to the new position of (2, -5). Finally, the R would be at the new location of (3, -2). Is this right? Part B asks this question. How do the size and shape of R'S'T' compare with the size and shape of tri RST? I think that the size and shape would remain the same after a translation of 8 units to the right. Am I correct? Part C On the coordinate grid, I then have to graph R''S''T'', the image of R'S'T after a reflection over the x axis. I know that my triange would be in the upper right quadrant. I know that it would flip over the line so that it would be a reflection. How can I determine the coordinates of the vertices for the R''S''T'' final triangle. I'm trying my best on this one. I know that it is alot of information, but I hope someone can please help me.Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!good job on A and B when you reflect a point over the x-axis; the x-values are unchanged, while the y-values change sign (similarly, with reflection over the y-axis) (reflection over the origin, causes BOTH signs to change) eg. ___ (3,2) reflected over the x-axis becomes (3,-2)
