## Which transformation is a rigid transformation?

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

## Are the size and shape of a figure preserved under the following transformations?

**Translation**: Translation is a type of transformation which is used to describe a function that moves an object a certain distance. In this transformation, dimensions of the figure is always preserved. Therefore, In Reflection, rotation and translation, dimensions of the figure are always preserved.

## What is a transformation that does not change the size or shape of a figure?

Univ.

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. A dilation is not an isometry since it either shrinks or enlarges a figure.

## What is a change in the position size or shape of a figure?

**Transformation** – a change in the position, shape or size of a figure.

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

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

## Which transformation S changes the size of a figure but does not change its shape Select all that apply?

There are four main types of transformations: **translation**, rotation, reflection and dilation. These transformations fall into two categories: rigid transformations that do not change the shape or size of the preimage and non-rigid transformations that change the size but not the shape of the preimage.

## What happens to a shape when you perform a rigid transformation?

A transformation is when you take a shape and you move it in some way. A basic rigid transformation is **a movement of the shape that does not affect the size of the shape**. The shape doesn’t shrink or get larger. There are three basic rigid transformations: reflections, rotations, and translations.
