Question

Use the rule (x, y) → (3x, 2y) to find the image for the preimage defined by the
points. Determine whether the transformation is a rigid motion.
4. A(3, 5) , B(5, 3) , C(2, 2)

How would I be able to work this step by step?

Step 1

Steps to solve this problem

• 1st find the image of the preimage of the points by the given transformation.
• Measure the distance between the images.
• Measure the distance between the preimages.
• If the distance between the images is equal to the distance between the corresponding preimages, then the transformation is rigid motion otherwise it is not a rigid motion
Step 2

Given, help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseEach preimage is mapped to its image by the rule or transformation (x, y)(3x, 2y) and the given points are A (3, 5), B (5, 3), C (2, 2) So, the image of the given points by the given rule will be A (3, 5)(3 x 3, 2 x 5) = A'(9,10) B (5,3)(3 x 5, 2 x 3) B'(15,6) C (2, 2)(3 x 2,2 x 2) = C'(6,4) fullscreen
