## What is the name of a shape before a transformation?

**A preimage or inverse image** is the two-dimensional shape before any transformation. The image is the figure after transformation.

## What happens when a figure is transformed?

**Translation** happens when we move the image without changing anything in it. Hence the shape, size, and orientation remain the same. For example: The given shape in blue is shifted 5 units down as shown by the red arrow, and the transformed image formed is shown in maroon.

## What are the 4 shape transformations?

The following figures show the four types of transformations: **Translation, Reflection, Rotation, and Enlargement**.

## What are sequences of transformations?

A sequence of transformations is **a set of translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations on a figure**. The transformations are performed in a given order. … Next, B is reflected across line to make C. transformation. A transformation is a translation, rotation, reflection, or dilation, or a combination of these.

## How do you describe shape transformations?

A translation moves a shape up, down or from side to side but it does not change its appearance in any other way. A transformation is **a way of changing the size or position of a shape**. … Every point in the shape is translated the same distance in the same direction.

## How do you name a transformation?

There are four main types of transformations: **translation, rotation, reflection and dilation**.

## What type of transformation is a rotation?

A rotation is a type of transformation which is **a turn**. A figure can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise on the coordinate plane. In both transformations the size and shape of the figure stays exactly the same. A rotation is a transformation that turns the figure in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

## How do you find transformations?

**The function translation / transformation rules:**

- f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.
- f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.
- f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left.
- f (x – b) shifts the function b units to the right.
- –f (x) reflects the function in the x-axis (that is, upside-down).

## What is an example of transformation?

Transformation is the process of changing. An example of a transformation is **a caterpillar turning into a butterfly**.
