Translation

Definition

Translation means Moving without rotating, resizing or anything else, just moving.

To Translate a shape

Every point of the shape must move:

  • the same distance
  • in the same direction.
Translation
Example

To say the shape gets moved 2 Units in the “x” direction, and 5 Units in the “y” direction, we can write:

(x, y) → (x + 2, y + 5)

Which says “all the x and y coordinates become x+2 and y+5”
