Here is a triangle drawn on a coordinate grid. The triangle is translated seven right and five up. Draw the triangle in its new position.

This triangle is translated seven spaces to the right and five spaces up. Let’s start with the coordinate which is marked with a pink dot and translate this seven to the right and five up. First, we’ve counted seven spaces to the right and five up. And we can mark the new point as shown.

Now that we have this first point, we can use this to draw the triangle. We know the height of the triangle is three squares. So we can draw three squares down from the point we’ve marked. We know the base of the triangle is three squares also. So we can draw the base, three squares from the point at the bottom of the triangle. Now, we can draw the third line.

So the triangle had been translated seven to the right and five up. So we translated this point on the triangle seven to the right and five up. Then, we used the measurements of the height and the base of the triangle to help us draw in the rest of the triangle.

And our completed triangle shows the new position after it’s been translated seven to the right and five up.
