we're asked to use the translation tool to determine the translation that will map triangle wi n so this right over here on to the other triangle so let's see if we can if we can translate this thing so I'm going to use a translation tool so I'm going to start with a translation so it says translate by and this is going to say how much we translate the x coordinates and how much do we translate the Y coordinates let's see if I want a map if I want to get to point W to correspond to this point right over here which it seems like it should I would have to go from x equals 2 to x equals negative 5 so my X would have to decrease by 7 so let me type that in negative 7 and then let's see on the Y side and we saw that so we by just typing in negative 7 here we've moved it to the left by 7 and now in the Y in the Y chorus I need to move it down by let's see 1 2 3 4 so my Y coordinates they move it down by 4 and let's see what happens and it looks like I was able to successfully translate it by translating X by negative 7 every point here every point on this has been shifted to the left by 7 and has been shifted down by 4 and I was able to get on to this triangle I was able to through the translation the image is now in kind of that target triangle that they asked me to to do map to to translate to we got it right
