Q:

Hexagon DEFGHI is translated on the coordinate plane below to create hexagon D'E'F'G'H'I': Hexagon DEFGHI and Hexagon D prime E prime F prime G prime H prime I prime on the coordinate plane with ordered pairs at D 2, 5, at E 5, 5, at F 6, 3, at G 5, 1, at H 2, 1, at I 1, 3, at D prime negative 6, negative 2, at E prime negative 3, negative 2, at F prime negative 2, negative 4, at G prime negative 3, negative 6, at H prime negative 6, negative 6, at I prime negative 7, negative 4 Which rule represents the translation of hexagon DEFGHI to hexagon D'E'F'G'H'I'? (x, y)→(x − 8, y − 7) (x, y)→(x − 7, x − 8) (x, y)→(x − 4, x − 5) (x, y)→(x − 5, y − 4)

Accepted Solution

A:
(x, y)→(x − 8, y − 7) is the correct translation. Take point D for example. The coordinate of D is (2, 5). The coordinate of D' (after translation) is (-6, -2). Since 2-8=-6, 5-7=-2, only the first choice is correct. You can also try other points and see why only this is the right translation.
