3-9.

Suppose that a triangle is created on a graph by connecting points *, ,* and

*below. Marika, Kimikuand Marcus want to move triangle*

*five units to the left and four units down. Write an integer expression to record how the shape moves and find the new coordinates for each vertex.*

Since each point is translated to the left and then down, there is a negative -coordinate movement and a negative

*-coordinate movement.*

Think of how you could express the and

*coordinate translation. Would you add or subtract from the original*

*and*

*coordinates to get the new translated point?*
