First, you must determine the RULE or what you will move your point on the Y axis or X axis. For example, lets say I have a triangle at A, B, and C.

A(3,4)

B( 3,2)

C(6,2)

Go ahead and graph those points on graph paper.

Next, look for a rule such as "translate the figure 2 units to the right and four units down. " That is how you find your rule.

If you are moving right on the x axis, add. If left, subtract.

If up on the Y axis, add. If down, subtract.

Now, use your rule to change all of your coordinates. (x+2, y-4)

x, y

A( 3,4) ---- A' (5, 0)

B(3,2)------B' (5, -2)

C(6,2)------C' (8, 0)

Now, graph your new coordinates and see if it looks right. Hope this answers your question!

It means to put the coordinates you were given on the coordinate plane. Ex. (-3,2) you find it the on the coordinate plane and then you plot it or graph it

A coordinate plane! If it has one or more breaks in it is not a coordinate plane but only a part of one.

This is a transformation which could be a rotation, translation or reflection.

no, coordinate graph is a graph made on a coordinate plane i.e xy-plane

A translation.

translation of graphs , try that :)

The coordinate plane is sometimes call the Cartesian plane because Rene Descartes is often credited with inventing the coordinate plane and so the coordinate plane is sometimes called the Cartesian plane,in his honor.

well, you find the two cooridinates on the plane and then graph them! KINDA EASY!
