Rotate the triangle 90º counterclockwise (↺) about the origin. Name the coordinates of ΔM′J′N′.
Next, reflect ΔM′J′N′ across the y-axis. Name the coordinates of M″J″N″.
What is the area of ΔMJN?
Use the eTool to complete the transformation. Notice how the points have changed. Pay attention closely to point N.
Notice that the y- coordinate has been multiplied by −1 and the x- and y-coordinates are interchanged.
Use the eTool. Notice how the coordinates compare to the coordinates of ΔM''J''N''. What happens to the points when you translate across the y-axis?
M''(3, 3), J''(1, 1), N''(1, 6)
What is the length of the base, JN? What is the height from point M to base JN? Use the area formula for triangles.
