a. Write a rule to describe the translation.

b. What were the coordinates of the drummer's final position? (3 points)

Expert's answer

The rule is (initial x-position + x-displacement, initial y-position + y-displacement).

The current coordinates of the lead drummer are (-2 + 1[step], -5 + 3[step]).

The current coordinates of the lead drummer are (-2 + 1[step], -5 + 3[step]).
