The original figure has been translated in the distance and direction shown by the vector.
1. What happens to the image when you move the endpoint G of the vector? Try moving it up, down, to the right, and to the left, and also make it longer and shorter. In each case describe what happens to the image as the translation vector changes (be specific and include some screen captures). In particular, imagine a line segment from A to A’ and one from B to B’ in each case – how do these segments relate to the vector?
