## Does translation preserve size or shape?

In geometry, a translation of a function means every point is moved left/right or up/down from it’s original position in the same direction and distance from where it originally was. That means that in a translation, **size, shape and orientation are preserved**.

## 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.

## 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.

## What is it called when a shape changes size?

**A transformation** changes the size, shape, or position of a figure and creates a new figure. A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is “isometry”.

## 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.

## Which transformation preserves both length and angle?

**A rigid transformation** preserves both length and angle measurements.

## What are the 5 transformations?

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

## Under which transformation is size not preserved?

( Isometric means that the transformation doesn’t change the size or shape of the figure.) A fourth type of transformation, a **dilation** , is not isometric: it preserves the shape of the figure but not its size.

## Which transformation will result in a similar figure?

Two figures are similar if and only if one figure can be obtained from the other by a single transformation , or a sequence of transformations, including **translations, reflections, rotations and/**or dilations.

## What are figures that have the same shape but not necessarily the same size?

**Congruent**. Two figures are congruent if they have the same shape and size. Two angles are congruent if they have the same measure. Two figures are similar if they have the same shape but not necessarily the same size.
