# What transformation does not change the orientation of a figure?

Contents

## Which types of transformations do not change the shape of a graph?

There are three kinds of isometric transformations of 2 -dimensional shapes: translations, rotations, and reflections. ( Isometric means that the transformation doesn’t change the size or shape of the figure.)

## Which transformation changes the orientation of a figure?

A reflection will change the orientation of the vertices of the figure. 6.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

Translation and Reflection transformations are nonrigid transformations.

## What are the 5 transformations?

These lessons help GCSE/IGCSE Maths students learn about different types of Transformation: Translation, Reflection, Rotation and Enlargement.

## What term describes a transformation that does not change a Figures size or shape?

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.

## Which transformation always preserves the orientation of a figure?

Rotation and translation preserve orientation, as objects’ pieces stay in the same order. Reflection does not preserve orientation.

## What does not change after rotation?

A figure has rotational symmetry if, when you rotate it, the figure appears to stay the same. The outlines do not change even as the figure turns.

## Which of the following is not a rigid transformation?

Types of transformations Translation, reflection, and rotation are all rigid transformations, while dilation is a non-rigid transformation.
