## What is an example of a translation on a graph?

Examples of Translation Functions y = f(x + 2) produces a horizontal shift to the left, because the +2 is the c value from our single equation. It is added to the x-value. For horizontal shifts, positive c values shift the graph left and negative c values shift the graph right.

## What is a translation in math graphing?

When you move a graph horizontally or vertically, this is called a translation. In other words, every point on the parent graph is translated left, right, up, or down.

**How do you translate a figure on a graph?**

When you perform translations, you slide a figure left or right, up or down. This means that on the coordinate plane, the coordinates for the vertices of the figure will change. To graph a translation, perform the same change for each point. You can identify a reflection by the changes in its coordinates.

### How do you read translations on a graph?

If you move the graph left or right in the direction of the horizontal axis, without rotating it, you are “translating” the graph horizontally. Move the graph straight up or down in the direction of the vertical axis, and you are translating the graph vertically.

### How do you translate a graph in geometry?

In the coordinate plane we can draw the translation if we know the direction and how far the figure should be moved. To translate the point P(x,y) , a units right and b units up, use P'(x+a,y+b) .

**What is the rule for translations?**

In a translation, every point of the object must be moved in the same direction and for the same distance.

#### How do you convert 3 units to the left?

In this graph, f (x) has been moved over three units to the left: f (x + 3) = (x + 3)2 is f (x) shifted three units to the left. This is always true: To shift a function left, add inside the function’s argument: f (x + b) gives f (x)shifted b units to the left.

#### How do you do translations?

**How do you translate a graph?**

Vertically translating a graph is equivalent to shifting the base graph up or down in the direction of the y-axis. A graph is translated k units vertically by moving each point on the graph k units vertically.

## What is a translation of a graph?

A TRANSLATION OF A GRAPH is its rigid movement, vertically or horizontally. On the left is the graph of the absolute value function. On the right is its translation to a “new origin” at (3, 4). The equation of its translation to (3, 4) is In general, When f(x) is translated a units horizontally, then the argument of f(x) becomes x − a.

## How to translate graphs?

Shift — The graph of a function retains its size and shape but moves (slides) to a new location on the coordinate grid

**What is the equation for translation?**

The equation of the translated circle is: #(x + 7)^2 + (y + 2)^2 = 25#.
