science space and astronomy# Which transformation will change Figure A into Figure B?

**translations**, reflections, and rotations. Congruent figures have the same size and shape. To transform figure A into figure B, you need to reflect it over the y-axis and translate one unit to the left.

Also question is, which transformation can change the area of a figure?

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". An isometry, such as a **rotation**, **translation**, or **reflection**, does not change the size or shape of the figure.

**Transformations**and Isometries A

**transformation**is a process which

**changes**the position (and possibly the size and orientation) of a

**shape**. There are four

**types of transformations**: reflection, rotation, translation and enlargement.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what happens when you apply more than one transformation to a figure?

Possible answer: The **transformations** occur sequentially, and order matters. The result may be the same as a single **transformation**.

Congruent Triangles (and other figures) They are the exact same size AND shape. If you slid triangle A to the right, it would exactly cover triangle B. This is called a **translation**.
