3-9.

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

Think of how you could express the *x* and *y* coordinate translation. Would you add or subtract from the original *x* and *y* coordinates to get the new translated point?

(a) *x*: −1+(−5) = −6

*y*: 3+(−4) = −1
