## Does order matter for transformations?

The order does not matter. Algebraically we have y=12f(x3). Of our four transformations, (1) and (3) are in the x direction while (2) and (4) are in the y direction. The order matters whenever we combine a stretch and a translation in the same direction.

## How do you graph negative transformations?

2. Reflect Over X-Axis or Y-Axis

- If there is a negative outside parentheses, then reflect over the x-axis, or vertically (all the y-values become negative)
- ex: f(x) = -x2.
- If there is a negative inside parentheses, then reflect over the y-axis horizontally (all the x-values become negative) and factor out the negative.

**What happens when a is negative in transformations?**

So, by putting a “minus” on everything, you’re changing all the positive (above-axis) y-values to negative (below-axis) y-values, and vice versa. This transformation rotated the original graph around the y-axis. Any points on the y-axis stay on the y-axis; it’s the points off the axis that switch sides.

**What are the sequence of transformations?**

A sequence of transformations is a set of translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations on a figure. The transformations are performed in a given order.

### What is an example of a similarity transformation?

Two geometric shapes are similar if they have the same shape but are different in size. A shoe box for a size 4 child’s shoe may be similar to, but smaller than, a shoe box for a man’s size 14 shoe.

### Does order matter in linear transformation?

“Also, when you write a linear transformation between vector spaces as a matrix (in terms of given bases of the vector spaces), then the bases need to be ordered, because the rows/columns of the matrix are definitely ordered.”

**What does sequence of transformations mean?**

A sequence of transformations is a set of translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations on a figure. The transformations are performed in a given order. Next, B is reflected across line to make C. transformation. A transformation is a translation, rotation, reflection, or dilation, or a combination of these.

**What happens when you put a negative in front of a function?**

If the negative sign belongs to the y, then the graph will flip about the x-axis. If the negative sign belongs to the x, then the graph will flip about the y-axis.

## What are transformations on a graph?

Vertical and Horizontal Translations. When the graph of a function is changed in appearance and/or location we call it a transformation. There are two types of transformations. If we add a positive constant to each y-coordinate, the graph will shift up. If we add a negative constant, the graph will shift down.

## How do you calculate transformations?

Example: the function g(x) = 1/x

- Move 2 spaces up:h(x) = 1/x + 2.
- Move 3 spaces down:h(x) = 1/x − 3.
- Move 4 spaces right:h(x) = 1/(x−4) graph.
- Move 5 spaces left:h(x) = 1/(x+5)
- Stretch it by 2 in the y-direction:h(x) = 2/x.
- Compress it by 3 in the x-direction:h(x) = 1/(3x)
- Flip it upside down:h(x) = −1/x.

**What are the rules of transformation geometry?**

Terms in this set (10)

- rule for 90° rotation counterclockwise. (x,y)->(-y,x)
- rule for 180° rotation.
- rule for 270° rotation.
- rule for 360° rotation.
- rule for reflection across the line y=x.
- rule for reflection across the line y=-x.
- rule for translation a units to the right.
- rule for translation a units to the left.

**When does a transformation shift a graph up or down?**

A vertical translationA rigid transformation that shifts a graph up or down. is a rigid transformation that shifts a graph up or down relative to the original graph. This occurs when a constant is added to any function. If we add a positive constant to each y-coordinate, the graph will shift up.

### What happens when you change the Order of a transformation?

I’ll also be emphasizing later some details on what each transformation does to the graph. As I said here, transformations can be applied in any order, but changing the order changes the result, so the trick is to find the order that results in the desired transformed function.

### What is the difference between rigid and non-rigid transformations?

A non-rigid transformation A set of operations that change the size and/or shape of a graph in a coordinate plane. changes the size and/or shape of the graph. A rigid transformation that shifts a graph up or down. is a rigid transformation that shifts a graph up or down relative to the original graph.

**What happens when you apply a transformation to a function?**

When applying multiple transformations, apply reflections first. Multiplying a function by a constant other than 1, , produces a dilation. If the constant is a positive number greater than 1, the graph will appear to stretch vertically. If the positive constant is a fraction less than 1, the graph will appear to stretch horizontally.
