# Translating by Vector: Ex. 16

- Author:

## DIRECTIONS:

In the applet below,
1) Construct a triangle.
2) Use the VECTOR TOOL to construct any vector whose terminal points DOES NOT lie on top of its initial point.
3) Display the label of

**the triangle's 3 vertices**and**vector**you've just constructed. Use the "Name and Value" option when showing the label. 4) Use the TRANSLATE BY VECTOR TOOL to translate the triangle by the given vector.## 5)

Suppose the coordinates of a point *P = *(*x*, *y*). What is the image of *P* under a translation by vector with components <*a*, *b*>?

When you're done (or if you're unsure of something), feel free to check by watching the quick silent screencast below the applet.
