Question #15583
Which of the following transformations will always produce a congruent figure?dilation expansion translation contraction
Expert's answer
Transformation of figure is congruent figure iff this transformation is
isometric (that is, distances between any pair of points are preserved

Dilatation and contraction increase and decrease distances inside the
figure, and expansion makes figure with another structure
of boundary, so
they don't produce congruent figures.

Translation only moves figure in
some direction and so it is isometric, and produce congruent figure.

Dear Deontae Jones. The answer is correct because the translation is isometric transformation, hence it preserves the distances, angles, and the image will be a congruent figure. The reflection and the rotation are other examples of transformations which produce a congruent figure. Reference: Isometric Transformations. Retrieved from
