- Vincent Tran
Work with a partner.
c. Draw the line through point A that is perpendicular to line DE. What do you notice?
d. Find the distance between points A and A''. Find the distance between the two parallel lines. What do you notice?
e. Hide triangle A'B'C'. Is there a single transformation that maps triangle ABC to triangle A''B''C''? Explain.
f. Make conjecture (a statement that is true) based on your answers in parts (c)-(e). Test your conjectures by changing triangle ABC and the parallel lines.
