What is a translation?

A translation is a transformation of a plane that slides every point of a figure the same distance in the same direction. A translation creates a figure that is congruent with the original figure and preserves distance and orientation.

Function Rules

T(x, y) = (x + h, y + k) To use the function rule you are going to add the vector, or h & k or T, to your preexisting points x & y. Your h is what you're adding to the x and your k is what your adding to the y.
