# Lesson 10-5 Transformations

Lesson 10-5: Transformations 1

### Types of Transformations Reflections:

a point.

These are like mirror images as seen across a line or

### Translations ( or slides):

This moves the figure to a new location with no change to the looks of the figure.

### Rotations:

This turns the figure clockwise or counter-clockwise but doesn’t change the figure.

### Dilations:

This reduces or enlarges the figure to a similar figure.

Lesson 10-5: Transformations 2

### Reflections

You can reflect a figure using a line or a point. All measures (lines and angles) are preserved but in a mirror image.

### Example:

The figure is reflected across line

l

.

You could fold the picture along line

l

and the left figure would coincide with the corresponding parts of right figure

.

l

Lesson 10-5: Transformations 3

### Reflection across the x-axis

: the x values stay the same and the y values change sign

. (x , y)

(x, -y)

### Reflection across the y-axis

: the y values stay the same and the x values change sign

. (x , y)

(-x, y)

### Example:

In this figure, line

l :

 reflects across the y axis to line

n

(2, 1)  (-2, 1) & (5, 4)  (-5, 4)  reflects across the x axis to line

m

. (2, 1)  (2, -1) & (5, 4)  (5, -4) Lesson 10-5: Transformations

### Reflections across specific lines:

To reflect a figure across the line y = a or x = a, mark the corresponding points equidistant from the line. i.e. If a point is 2 units above the line its corresponding image point must be 2 points below the line.

### Example:

Reflect the fig. across the line y = 1.

### (-6, 0)

### Lines of Symmetry

   If a line can be drawn through a figure so the one side of the figure is a reflection of the other side, the line is called a “line of symmetry.” Some figures have 1 or more lines of symmetry. Some have no lines of symmetry.

One line of symmetry Two lines of symmetry Four lines of symmetry Infinite lines of symmetry No lines of symmetry Lesson 10-5: Transformations 6

### Translations (slides)

   If a figure is simply moved to another location without change to its shape or direction, it is called a translation (or slide).

If a point is moved “a” units to the

right

and “b” units

up

, then the translated point will be at

### (x + a, y + b).

If a point is moved “a” units to the

left

and “b” units

down

, then the translated point will be at

### Example:

A

Image A translates to image B by moving to the right 3 units and down 8 units.

A (2, 5)

 B (2+3, 5-8) 

B (5, -3) B

Lesson 10-5: Transformations 7

### Composite Reflections

 If an image is reflected over a line and then that image is reflected over a parallel line (called a

composite reflection

), it results in a translation.

### Example:

A B C

Image A reflects to image B, which then reflects to image C. Image C is a translation of image A Lesson 10-5: Transformations 8

## Rotations

  An image can be rotated about a fixed point.

 An image can be rotated over two intersecting lines by using composite reflections.

Image A reflects over line

m

to B, image B reflects over line

n

to C. Image C is a rotation of image A.

A C

Lesson 10-5: Transformations 9

### Rotations

It is a type of transformation where the object is rotated around a fixed point called the point of rotation. When a figure is rotated

90° counterclockwise

about the origin, switch each coordinate and multiply the first coordinate by -1.

(x, y)

(-y, x)

### Ex:

(1,2)  (-2,1) & (6,2)  (-2, 6) When a figure is rotated

180°

,

multiply both coordinates by -1.

(x, y)

(-x, -y)

### Ex:

(1,2)  (-1,-2) & (6,2)  (-6, -2) Lesson 10-5: Transformations 10

### Angles of rotation

 In a given rotation, where A is the figure and B is the resulting figure after rotation, and X is the center of the rotation, the measure of the angle of rotation  AXB is twice the measure of the angle formed by the intersecting lines of reflection.

### Example:

Given segment AB to be rotated over lines

l

and

m,

which intersect to form a 35° angle. Find the rotation image segment KR.

B A 35 ° Lesson 10-5: Transformations 11

### Angles of Rotation . .

    Since the angle formed by the lines is 35°, the angle of rotation is 70°.

1. Draw  AXK so that its measure is 70° and AX = XK. 2. Draw  BXR to measure 70° and BX = XR. 3. Connect K to R to form the rotation image of segment AB.

### Dilations

  A dilation is a transformation which changes the size of a figure but not its shape. This is called a similarity transformation.

Since a dilation changes figures proportionately, it has a scale factor

k.

• If the absolute value of

k

is greater than 1, the dilation is an enlargement.

• If the absolute value of

k

is between 0 and 1, the dilation is a reduction. • If the absolute value of k is equal to 0, the dilation is congruence transformation. (No size change occurs.) Lesson 10-5: Transformations 13

 In the figure, the center is C. The distance from C to E is three times the distance from C to A. The distance from C to F is three times the distance from C to B. This shows a transformation of segment AB with center C and a scale factor of 3 to the enlarged segment EF.

A E R A

C W B C B F

In this figure, the distance from C to R is ½ the distance from C to A. The distance from C to W is ½ the distance from C to B. This is a transformation of segment AB with center C and a scale factor of ½ to the reduced segment RW. Lesson 10-5: Transformations 14

### examples…

Find the measure of the dilation image of segment AB, 6 units long, with a scale factor of

### 1.

S.F. = -4

: the dilation image will be an enlargment since the absolute value of the scale factor is greater than 1. The image will be 24 units long.

### 2.

S.F. = 2/3:

since the scale factor is between 0 and 1, the image will be a reduction. The image will be 2/3 times 6 or 4 units long.

### 3.

S.F. = 1:

since the scale factor is 1, this will be a congruence transformation. The image will be the same length as the original segment, 1 unit long. Lesson 10-5: Transformations 15
