# Lesson Worksheet: Translations Mathematics • 8th Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice translating a point or a simple shape on a grid and describing a translation using up, down, right, and left.

Q1:

Describe the single transformation that would map triangle onto triangle in the given figure. • Aa translation seven right and two down
• Ba translation seven right and two up
• Ca translation seven left and two down
• Da translation seven left and two up
• Ea translation two right and seven down

Q2:

A line segment with a length of 5 is translated three left and two down. What is the length of its image?

Q3:

Hannah wants to change the location of her rectangular desk. If she moves it only by a translation, will it fit exactly into one of the other corners of the room? • AYes
• BNo

Q4:

Which diagram shows two triangles where one is a translation of the other?

• A • B • C • D Q5:

Sophia wants to change the location of her right-triangular desk. If she moves it only by a translation, will it fit exactly into one of the other corners of the room? • ANo
• BYes

Q6:

Two lines were translated three right and two down. Their images were parallel, were the original two lines parallel or intersecting?

• Aparallel
• Bintersecting

Q7:

Two parallel lines are translated six right and five up. Are the resulting two lines parallel to each other, or do they intersect?

• AThey are parallel.
• BThey intersect.

Q8:

is translated three left and five up. Is the length of the image resulting from this transformation greater than, less than, or the same as the length of ?

• Athe same
• Bgreater than
• Cless than

Q9:

Sophia drew a polygon on a piece of graph paper. Now, she will translate it left and down to produce its image. Will the polygon and its image have the same shape?

• AIt depends on how many units down she translates the polygon.
• BIt depends on how many units left she translates the polygon.
• CNo
• DYes

Q10:

Two points were plotted on a grid. Then, each point was translated to the right to produce its image as shown. Which statement is correct?

• APoint was translated 3 more squares to the right than point was.
• BPoint was translated 3 more squares to the right than point was.
• CPoint was translated 2 more squares to the right than point was.
• DPoint was translated 2 more squares to the right than point was.
