Question #26796

Use an algebraic rule to describe a translation right 4 units and down 2 units. Which one of these is the answer?

A. (x+2,y-4)

B. (x+4,y-2)

C. (x+2,y+4)

D. (x-4,y-2)

A. (x+2,y-4)

B. (x+4,y-2)

C. (x+2,y+4)

D. (x-4,y-2)

Expert's answer

According algebraic rules,four units to the right, to the firstcoordinate (X) mean (X+4) and two unitsdown, relative to the second coordinate (Y),mean (Y-2). Sothe correct answer is B.

You ask a new question, which is not related to this one. Please post it as a new question. Answer to your question is the following: rotation of 270 degrees counterclockwise moves point (x,y) to (y,-x). Therefore, the coordinates of the vertices will be (4,1), (3,-8), (-1, -4).
