Quadrilateral ABCD with vertices 4(4, 4), B(5, 1), C(5, -1) and D(4, -2) is translated left 2 units and down 3 units. Graph the preimage and the image. (Lesson 12.4)

Answer:

Considering the fact that the figure is translated 2 units to the left and 3 units down, we can calculate the coordinates of the translated image by subtracting 2 from the x coordinate and 3 from the y coordinate.

Therefore, using my explained principle, we can calculate the coordinates of the translated image as follows:

A(4, 4) ⇒ A'(2, 1)

B(5, 1) ⇒ B'(3, -2)

C(5, 1) ⇒ C'(3, -4)

D(4, 2) ⇒ D'(2, -5)

After finding the obtained coordinates on the plane, we can connect them and get the translated image.

The picture below illustrates the preimage and image.

**Mathematics Grade 8 Unit 5 Study Guide Answer Key Question 2.**

Andrew’s old television had a width of 32 inches and a height of 18 inches. His new television is larger by a scale factor of 2.5. Find the perimeter and area of Andrew’s old television and his new television. (Lesson 13.3)

Perimeter of old TV: ________________

Area of old TV: ________________

Perimeter of new TV: ________________

Area of new TV: ________________

Answer:

The television is in the shape of a rectangle.

Perimeter of the old TV = 2( w + h)

Width = 32 inches.

Height = 18 inches.

= 2(32 + 18)

= 100 square inches.

Area of the old TV = w x h = 32 x 18 = 576.

The perimeter of new TV = perimeter of old TV x 2

= 100 x 2

= 200 square inches

Area of the new TV = area of the old TV x square of 2

= 576 x 4

= 2304.

**Dilate each figure with the origin as the center of the dilation. List the vertices of the dilated figure then graph the figure. (Lesson 13.2)**

Question 3.

(x, y) → (\(\frac{1}{4}\)x, \(\frac{1}{4}\)y)

Answer:

Firstly, we will write down the coordinates of points X, Y and Z, so we could calculate coordinates after dilation.

Therefore:

X(-8,4)

Y(-4, 4)

Z(4,8)

Using the algebraic expression of dilation (x, y) → (\(\frac{1}{4}\)x, \(\frac{1}{4}\)y), we can calculate the vertices of the dilated figure as following:

X(-8, 4) ⇒ X'(-2, 1)

Y(-4, -4) ⇒ Y'(-1, -1)

Y(4, 8) ⇒ Y'(1, 2)

We can graph obtained coordinates and connect them to get the preimage and image. Picture below shows the figure before and after dilation.

**Study Guide 8th Grade Math Unit 5 Answer Key Question 4.**

(x, y) → (2x, 2y)

Answer:

Rectangle WXYZ has vertices at ( 2, 1), (- 2, 1), (2, -1), and (2, 1). It is first dilated by (x, y) → (2x, 2y), and then translated by (x, y) → (x, y + 3). Let us determine the vertices of the image.

a. Determining the vertices by dilating the image from (x, y) → (2x, 2y). using the points (-2, -1), (-2, 1), (2, -1), and (2, 1).

(-2, -1) → (-4, -2)

(-2, 1) → (-4, 2)

(2, -1) → (4, -2)

(2, 1) → (4, 2)

Translating the ¡mage from (x, y) → (x, y + 3), using the points (-4, -2), (-4, 2), (4, -2), and (4, 4)

(-4, -2) → ( 4, 1)

(-4, 2) → (-4, 5)

(4, -2) → (4, 1)

(4, 2) → (4, 5)

Thus, the vertices of the image are (-4, 1), (-4, 5), (4, 1), and (4, 5).

b. Two figures are said to be congruent if one can be obtained from the other by a sequence of translations, reflections, and rotations. Congruent figures have the same size and shape. Now, Let us determine if the preimage and the translated image are congruent and/or similar.

Let us illustrate the images using the graph.

As we can see on the graph the two images are both similar in shape but their sizes are different, the translated image is obviously bigger than the image, so the pre image and translated image are similar but not congruent.

**Unit 5 Math Test 8th Grade Study Guide Answer Key Question 2.**

A sail for a sailboat is represented by a triangle on the coordinate plane with vertices (0, 0), (5, 0), and (5, 4). The triangle is dilated by a scale factor of 1.5 with the origin as the center of dilation. Find the coordinates of the dilated triangle. Are the triangles similar? Explain.

Answer:

A sail for a sailboat is represented by a triangle on the coordinate plane with vertices (0, 0), (5, 0), and (5, 4). The triangle is dilated by a scale factor of 1.5 with the origin as the center of dilation. To determine the vertices of the dilated triangle, let us use the expression below

(x, y) → (1.5x, 1.5y)

Having the vertices of the triangle (0, 0), (5, 0), and (5, 4), the dilated triangle has the vertices which are

(x, y) → (1.5x, 1.5y)

(0, 0) → (1.5(0), 1.5(0)) = (0, 0)

(5, 0) → (1.5(5), 1.5(0)) = (7.5, 0)

(5, 4) → (1.5(5), 1.5(4)) = (7.5, 6)

Thus, the vertices of the dilated triangle are (0, 0), (7.5, 0), and (7.5, 6).

Looking at the graph of the two figures, we can say that they are similar triangles since they have the same shape and their corresponding angles are congruent

Answer:

(D) y = -3x – 2

Explanation:

Lets write linear equation using values from the table, and change in equation y = kx + n to calculate coefficients k and n.

Using k = -3 and n = -2 we can now write the linear equation.

y = -3x – 2

Question 5.

Which of the following is not true of a trapezoid that has been translated 8 units down?

(A) The new trapezoid is the same size as the original trapezoid.

(B) The new trapezoid is the same shape as the original trapezoid.

(C) The new trapezoid is in the same orientation as the original trapezoid.

(D) The y-coordinates of the new trapezoid are the same as the y-coordinates of the original trapezoid.

Answer:

(D) The y-coordinates of the new trapezoid are the same as the y-coordinates of the original trapezoid.

Explanation:

To determine among the options is not true of a trapezoid that has been translated 8 units down. Let us analyze each statements.

First, the statement is The new trapezoid is the same size as the original trapezoid. It is true because even if it is translated 8 units down, still the new trapezoid has the same size as the original and nothing will be change when it comes to size.

Second, the statement is The new trapezoid is the same shape as the original trapezoid. This statement is correct, because nothing will change in their shape. The new trapezoid is the same as the shape of the original trapezoid.

Third, the statement is The new trapezoid is in the same orientation as the original trapezoid. This is also correct since the direction of the new and original trapezoid remains the same.

Lastly, the statement is The y-coordinates of the new trapezoid are the same as the y-coordinates of the original trapezoid. This statement is not true., since it is said that the trapezoid has been translated 8 units down. The direction of the units is downward which is vertical, then the y-coordinates will change. So, the y-coordinates of the new trapezoid are the not same as the y-coordinates of the original trapezoid.

Question 6.

Which represents a reduction?

(A) (x, y) → (0.9x, 0.9y)

(B) (x, y) → (1.4x, 1.4y)

(C) (x, y) → (0.7x, 0.3y)

(D) (x, y) → (2.5x, 2.5y)

Answer:

(A) (x, y) → (0.9x, 0.9y)

Explanation:

A dilation can produce a larger figure (an enlargement) or a smaller figure (a reduction). The scale factor k describes how much the figure is enlarged or reduced. If the scale factor k is between 0 and 1 the image is a reduction. If the scale factor is greater than 1, the image is an enlargement.

To determine which represents a reduction among the following, let us identify the scale factor of each given.

(x, y) → (0.9x, 0.9y)

(x, y) → (1.4x, 1.4y)

(x, y) → (0.7x, 0.3y)

(x, y) → (2.5x, 2.5y)

Determining g the scale factor k.

(x, y) → (0.9x, 0.9y); since k = 0.9 is between 0 and 1, then this is reduction

(x, y) → (1.4x, 1.4y); since k = 1.4 is greater than 1, then this is enlargement

(x, y) → (0.7x, 0.3y); cannot be identify as reduction or enlargement since k are different

(x, y) → (2.5x, 2.5y); since k = 2.5 is greater than 1, then this is enlargement

Since (x, y) → (0.9x, 0.9y) represents reduction, then the answer is Letter A.

**8th Grade Go Math Answer Key Unit 5 Assessment Answers Question 10.**

Which statement is false?

(A) No integers are irrational numbers.

(B) All whole numbers are integers.

(C) No real numbers are rational numbers.

(D) All integers greater than or equal to 0 are whole numbers.

Answer:

(C) No real numbers are rational numbers.

Explanation:

To determine the false statement, let us analyze each statement in the given choices.

The first is “No integers are irrational numbers”. Integers is the set of rational numbers that include zero, positive, and negative numbers. By definition of integers, we can say that all integers are rational numbers and not irrational. Thus, the statement is true.

Second, “All whole numbers are integers”. Whole numbers is the set of zero and natural numbers, and natural numbers are the numbers that include positive integers starting from 1 up to infinity. By definition of whole numbers, we can say that all whole numbers are integers. Thus, the statement is true

Third, “No real numbers are rational numbers.” The real numbers is the set of numbers containing all the rational and all of the irrational numbers. By definition of real numbers, we can say that real numbers can be irrational numbers which contradicts the given statement. Thus, the statement is false.

Fourth. “All integers greater than or equal to 0 are whole numbers”. Whole numbers are the set of zero and natural numbers, and natural numbers are the numbers that include positive integers starting from 1 up to infinity. By definition of whole numbers, we can say that all integers greater than or equal to 0 are whole numbers. Thus, the statement is true

Thus, the false statement among the four choices is the letter C, No real numbers are rational numbers.

**Hot Tips!** Make sure you look at all answer choices before making your decision. Try substituting each answer choice into the problem if you are unsure of the answer.

Answer:

The coordinates of the given triangle is (5,-2),(1,-2), (3,-4)

Rotation in 90 degrees counterclockwise about the origin is (x,y) = (-y.x)

(5,-2) = (2,5)

(1,2) = (2, 1)

(3, -4) = (4,3)

After rotation of 90 degrees the triangle is in the 1st quadrant.

Question 13.

An equilateral triangle has a perimeter of 48 centimeters. If the triangle is dilated by a factor of 0.75, what is the length of each side of the new triangle?

Answer:

The length of each side is 28 cm.

The perimeter of the equilateral triangle is 48 cm.

To find each side of the original triangle, you do 48/3=16cm.

Since the triangle dilates by 0.75,

0.75×16=12cm.

Then you have to add 12 to 16 because the triangle gets bigger by 12 cm.

so 16+12=28 cm.
