## What is a flip in transformations?

Flip (**reflection**) — a transformation creating a mirror image of a figure on the opposite side of a line. A flip is also called a reflection. Turn (rotation) — the transformation that occurs when a figure is turned a certain angle and direction around a point. A turn is also called a rotation.

## When an image is flipped this transformation is called?

**A reflection** is a transformation that turns a figure into its mirror image by flipping it over a line.

## What is a flip shape?

A flip is a motion in geometry in which **an object is turned over a straight line to form a mirror image**. Every point of an object and the corresponding point on the image are equidistant from the flip line. A flip is also called a reflection.

## How do you describe rotation transformation?

**Rotation turns a shape around a fixed point called the centre of rotation**. Rotation is an example of a transformation. A transformation is a way of changing the size or position of a shape.

## How do you transform a shape?

**There are different kinds of transformation.**

- Rotation is when the shape is turned around a point.
- Reflection is when a shape is reflected in a mirror line.
- Translation is when a shape is moved a certain distance from its original position.

## When transforming shapes what is the name given to the shape you start with?

A transformation is a change in the position, size, or shape of a geometric figure. The given figure is called **the preimage (original)** and the resulting figure is called the new image.

## When a shape is slide to make an image the transformation can also be called a?

[Figure 6]

Another name for a slide is **a translation**. The answer is that this transformation is a slide.

## Does a reflection flip an object?

A reflection is colloquially known as a flip because it does the same thing a mirror does − **flips an object over a line or point or plane into an image**. … The same holds for sets of points such as lines and planes.

## What’s the difference between flip and turn?

As nouns the difference between turn and flip

is that **turn is a change of direction or orientation** while flip is a maneuver which rotates an object end over end or flip can be a mixture of beer, spirit, etc, stirred and heated by a hot iron (a flip dog ).
