# Translating A Polygon

## Read the directions and complete the problems.

Step 1: Create a polygon with vertices as described below.
A(1, 2) , B(3, 5), and C(6, 3)
Step 2: Click (button 8)
Step 3: Choose Translate by Vector .
Step 4: Translate the polygon
a) Click the polygon itself
b) Click point A. A "ray" will appear. This ray is a vector.
c) Click on a second point that moves the same left/right direction and up/down direction as the rule. Move the ray so that a second point is created.
For example: if your rule is T<-4, 3>( ABC), you will move the second point left 4 and up 3 from point A.
Step 5: When you've completed step 4, a translated triangle will automatically generate.
Step 6: Move point A' around. You will notice that the image moves according to the vector.

**Problem #1: T<-4, 3>(****ABC) Problem #2: T<5, 7>(****ABC) *Perform each transformation within this applet.****Take a screen shot of your work (you will have problem #1 and problem #2 on one screenshot.) Insert it into the appropriate google slide. ***Geogebra will NOT save your work!!!!## New Resources
