### Transcript

same direction while we only need to figure out one

point here And that tells us what the rest are

let's start with s it begins its journey It negative

one negative one and ends on the slopes of mount

doom Wait Maybe that was somebody else The translated point

s prime is at negative seven seven right there So

to see how the point was translated from asked us

prime we need to look at the x and y

values separately Well the x value went from negative one

two Negative seven a distance of negative six And then

they see we're moving to left here So that's a

negative x value The y value went from negative one

two seven and change a positive eight Remember that the

point had to move one space from negative one to

zero and then another seven spots up to seven there

for eight total Not only is that the translation for

ask but for the entire figure in that handy So

how Does that translation right out then Well using our

translation rule of course that looks a little something like

this Ex plus A why plus be right Where a

is The change in x and b is the change

in why cleverly named here Well we could just feel

in those letters with actual numbers Well not the x

and y parts but we've got a equals negative six

and b equals eight so it looks like this extra

y and translates to x minus six Why plus eight 00:01:33.419 --> [endTime] And the answer is a that's it more shmoop
