## Does translation preserve size?

Altogether, we have three transformations that are rigid transformations which preserve length and angle measurement: translations, rotations, and reflections.

## Do transformations preserve shape?

Shape-preserving transformations. A **shape preserves its shape if a rotation, translation or scaling is performed on it**. … A dilative rotation is the only possibility — it can be direct or opposite depending on the dilatation.

## What do translations preserve of a figure?

Yes, translations are rigid transformations. They too **preserve angle measure and segment length**. Comment on Ethan Hassler’s post “Yes, translations are rig…”

## What types of transformations affect the size of a figure?

There are four types of transformations: **reflections, rotations, translations, and dilations**. Three of the transformations are called “rigid transformations”. This means that the figure will preserve its size when it is transformed. Unlike rigid transformations, dilations affect the size of the figure.

## Which transformations do not preserve orientation of the figure?

**Reflection** does not preserve orientation. Dilation (scaling), rotation and translation (shift) do preserve it.

## 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.

## What is a transformation that slides a figure?

**TRANSLATION**. **A translation** is a transformation that slides a figure across a plane or through space. With translation all points of a figure move the same distance and the same direction. TRANSLATION. Basically, translation means that a figure has moved.

## When a figure is translated Why would the orientation always be preserved?

Orientation is how the relative pieces of an object are arranged. **Rotation** and translation preserve orientation, as objects’ pieces stay in the same order. Reflection does not preserve orientation.

## Which transformation preserves the orientation of a pre image?

**A translation** is considered a “direct isometry” because it not only maintains congruence, but it also, unlike reflections and rotations, preserves its orientation. On the other hand, a dilation is not an isometry because its Image is not congruent with its Pre-Image.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

**Translation and Reflection transformations** are nonrigid transformations.
