## 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.

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”
