# Which transformation rule would produce figures that are similar but not congruent?

Contents

## What transformation is similar but not congruent?

The correct answer is: dilation and rotation.

## Which sequence of transformations would result in a figure that is similar but not congruent?

When two shapes are similar but not congruent, the sequence of steps showing the similarity usually has a single dilation and then the rest of the steps are rigid transformations. The dilation can come at any time. It does not matter which figure you start with.

## What transformations can prove figures are similar?

Two figures are similar if and only if one figure can be obtained from the other by a single transformation , or a sequence of transformations, including translations, reflections, rotations and/or dilations.

## What do congruent figures and similar figures have in common?

Congruent means being exactly the same. When two line segments have the same length, they are congruent. When two figures have the same shape and size, they are congruent. … Similar means that the figures have the same shape, but not the same size.

IT IS IMPORTANT:  Question: How do you know if a transformation is injective or surjective?

## What transformations will produce a congruent figure?

The transformations that always produce congruent figures are TRANSLATIONS, REFLECTIONS, and ROTATIONS. These transformations are isometric, thus, the figures produced are always congruent to the original figures. The transformation that sometimes produce congruent figures is dilation.

## Which transformation will result in a figure with the same size and shape and in the same location?

A symmetry transformation produces an image that is identical in size and shape to the original figure.

## What transformation preserves angle measures but not segment lengths?

When a transformation doesn’t change the side lengths and angle measurements of a shape, we call this preserving length and angle measurement. These are rigid transformations. Translations, rotations, and reflections are all rigid transformations.

## Which sequence of transformations to Triangle FGH result in Triangle FGH?

Which sequence of transformations to triangle FGH results in triangle FʻGʻH? A90° clockwise rotation about the origin, then a dilation by a scale factor of 2 with a center of dilation at the origin.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

Translation and Reflection transformations are nonrigid transformations.

## Which of the following is true about similar figures?

Similar figures have the same shape (but not necessarily the same size) and the following properties: Corresponding sides are proportional. That is, the ratios of the corresponding sides are equal. Corresponding angles are equal.

## Which transformation would create an image and a pre image that are similar figures?

Q. Which transformation would create an image and a pre-image that are similar figures? A dilation with a scale factor of 1. A translation to the right and up.

## How are similarity transformations and congruence transformations alike and different?

Similar figures have the same shape but not necessarily the same size. Congruence transformations preserve length and angle measure. When the scale factor of the dilation(s) is not equal to 1 or −1, similarity transformations preserve angle measure only.

## Which composition of transformations will create a pair of similar not congruent triangles?

The correct option is “ a rotation thenna dilation”.

## Are similar figures congruent?

All congruent figures are similar, but the similar figures are not congruent. … Congruence can be defined as “Both the figures are having the same shape, same size, everything to be equal”, whereas similarity means “same size, same ratios, same angle but different in size”.
