## What transformation makes it smaller?

A dilation is a type of transformation that enlarges or reduces a figure (called the preimage) to create a new figure (called the image). The scale factor, r, determines how much bigger or smaller the dilation image will be compared to the preimage.

## Which type of transformation can change the size of an object?

Dilations. A dilation is a transformation which preserves the shape and orientation of the figure, but changes its size. The scale factor of a dilation is the factor by which each linear measure of the figure (for example, a side length) is multiplied.

## Do transformations change size?

A transformation changes the size, shape, or position of a figure and creates a new figure. A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is “isometry”. An isometry, such as a rotation, translation, or reflection, does not change the size or shape of the figure.

## What is a size transformation?

A type of transformation that is performed by banks and other depositary institutions whereby small deposits by different types of depositors are pooled in order to issue large loans to seekers of funds.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

Translation and Reflection transformations are nonrigid transformations.

## What are the 5 transformations?

These lessons help GCSE/IGCSE Maths students learn about different types of Transformation: Translation, Reflection, Rotation and Enlargement.

## Which transformations are rigid transformations?

The rigid transformations include rotations, translations, reflections, or their combination.

## What makes a transformation isometric?

An isometric transformation (or isometry) is a shape-preserving transformation (movement) in the plane or in space. The isometric transformations are reflection, rotation and translation and combinations of them such as the glide, which is the combination of a translation and a reflection.
