OK. The point is, we're just going to pick up the rectangle where it is right now, and relocate

The point is, we're just going to pick up the rectangle where it is right now, and relocate

The point is, we’re just going to pick up the rectangle where it is right now, and relocate

it at a new position. And the new position is 4 units right and

2 units down. Well, moving to the left and right is shifting

the x. And up and down is changing the y value. The original position of A is (-4, 6). Going

to the right is increasing the x value, so

4 plus negative 4 is 0, so the new x coordinate of point A is 0. That means we can eliminate

options B, D, and E. Moving down decreases the y value, so we subtract

2 from the original y. 6 -- 2 is 4, so the new y coordinate is 4.

The new location of point A is (0, 4)- option A.
