## 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.
