Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Look at the following rectangle drawn on x and y-coordinate axes.

 

Translate the rectangle

When we translate a shape, we follow the set instruction and move each corner in turn.

In this example, this is done by shifting each point 5 squares to the left.

The result looks like this:

 

Rectangle translation

Rectangle ABCD has been translated 5 squares to the left to form Rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of B'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates).

 

Translate B

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of C'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates).

 

Translate C

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of D'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates).

 

Translate D

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Write down the coordinates of A'.

Translate D

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up and 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.  Notice that we count 5 squares up from A and then 6 squares to the left to get A'.

Write down the coordinates of B'.
