# Identifying Translations Worksheets

How to Identify Translations - The translation is a concept that is used in geometry which means "moving." Moving is not the same as rotating, resizing or any other manipulation. For instance, a point is moved in a straight line and in the same direction. For instance, if a triangle is placed at coordinates (2, 5), (5, 7) and (1, 10). Now, you have to move the triangle horizontally at 2 points and vertically at 3 points. In this scenario, every point will move according to the instructions given and form a figure known as the "image" of the object. Thus, the end figure will be placed on coordinates, (4,8), (7, 10) and (3, 13).
