## What is the rule for translation transformation?

Mapping Rule A mapping rule has the following form **(x,y) → (x−7,y+5)** and tells you that the x and y coordinates are translated to x−7 and y+5. Translation A translation is an example of a transformation that moves each point of a shape the same distance and in the same direction.

## What is the formula for translation?

A translation is a function that moves every point a constant distance in a specified direction. A vertical translation is generally given by the equation y=f(x)+b y = f ( x ) + b . A horizontal translation is generally given by the equation **y=f(x−a) y = f ( x − a )** .

## How do you write a transformation?

**The function translation / transformation rules:**

- f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.
- f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.
- f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left.
- f (x – b) shifts the function b units to the right.
- –f (x) reflects the function in the x-axis (that is, upside-down).

## How do you describe transformations?

A translation moves a shape up, down or from side to side but it does not change its appearance in any other way. Translation is an example of a transformation. A transformation is **a way of changing the size or position of a shape**. Every point in the shape is translated the same distance in the same direction.

## What are the 4 translations?

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 is the difference between translation and transformation?

What is the difference between translation and transformation in math? … A translation is a kind of transformation, specifically sliding everything by the same distance in one direction. Formally, a transformation is **any function from a set to the same set**.
