Bearclaws72:

You have been asked by the police to find one of the three locations the Acute Perps gang is likely to hit in the coming weeks. Because the gang sticks to a triangular pattern, the locations could be a translation, reflection, or rotation of the original triangle. Choose one of the following transformations to help locate the gang: Translation using SSS Reflection using ASA Rotation using SAS After you have selected the one transformation you will be completing, go to step 2 for detailed directions.

Bearclaws72:

I', choosing Translation

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

If you chose translation, use the coordinates of your transformation along with the distance formula to show that the two triangles are congruent by the SSS postulate. You must show all work with the distance formula and each corresponding pair of sides to receive full credit.

Bearclaws72:

Then this is what need to be submitted

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

The three ordered pairs, with labels, of the congruent triangle you created using your transformation (Make sure to indicate which transformation was chosen.) All work for any corresponding sides using the distance formula, and clear labels All work for any corresponding angles (shown by use of a compass and straightedge or the slope formula) The answer to the question that matches your transformation.

Vocaloid:

does it tell you how much to translate it by?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

One sec

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

No it doesnt honestly

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Not that i can see

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Just gives me that picture up there

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

first step would be to write down the coordinates of the original 3 points

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

you can label them C, W, and G for short

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

W (-2,-3) C (3,6) G (-3,6)

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

flip the x and y coordinates for C and G

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

C should be (6,3) and G is (6,-3)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

to make things simple, pick a number (like 5) and add that to one of the coordinates

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so, for every y-coordinate, you could add 5 to get your C' G' and W'

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

this counts as a translation up by 5 units

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

C (6,8) Right?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

good

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

G (6,2)

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

[label the transformed points as C', W' and G' instead of C W and G so it's less confusing]

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

but yeah you have the right idea

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

W' (-2,2)?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

good, now try drawing your C' W' and G' and the new triangle should look the same as the old one

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

after that, it's the tedious part - using the distance formula to calculate all six triangle sides ;;

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

I have no clue how to do that XD

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

|dw:1508807902267:dw|

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so let's just focus on WG and W'G' for now

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh Jesus

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So just plug it in right?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yeah basically W = (-2,2) and G = (6,-3) you would let x1 = -2, x2 = 6 y1 = 2, y2 = -3 and plug them into the formula

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

OH ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

to make it a bit easier to understand: 1. subtract the x-coordinates, then square the result 2. subtract the y-coordinates, then square the result 3. add your numbers from step 1 and step 2 4. take the square root of step 3

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

your answer should be 8 for WG ~and~ W'G'

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So what about C?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

for CG and C'G' the distance is 6 (make sure to show your work though)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok np will do thanks

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

What would this site be without you XD

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

and for CW and C'W' the distance is 10

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

label all six sides with the appropriate distance and show your calculations (this is super tedious sorry ;_;)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Now what do I do with that info just those are the answers?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Well it's not a simple exam I'm basically expecting this haha

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

It like an assignment my teacher asks for on a discussion baes assesment

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

once you show that CW = C'W', CG = C'G', and WG = W'G' that should be sufficient proof by SSS

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Alright is it okay if I check back with you on my answers later? I gotta go take a shower XD

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yeah sure I'll be on for maybe 2-3 more hours :

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Rip m8

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

@Vocaloid So I do this for every combination of points?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yep, there should be 6 distances total

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So we did W and G

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Now I need G and C and W and C

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Right?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

good

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

then after that it would be W'G', G'C' and W'C'

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh God ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

CG= 3.4?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

your distances should be whole numbers ^^" I can do an example calculation if it makes things easier

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Gimme a sec

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Lemme explain what I did

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

I did steps one and two and got this (6,2) (6,8)=(0,-12)

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

^ that's C and C'

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Wait hm?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

you should be finding CG and C'G' not CC'

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Okey? Thats weird

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so your points would be C and G

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so your original side lengths are CG, WG, and WC your new sides are C'G', W'G', and W'C' so you should find the distance between C-G, W-G, W-C, etc.

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So do it again in reverse?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Cause I did it GC

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

the two points you picked weren't C and G

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Point C is (6,8) right?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

that's C' not C

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

C (without the dash mark) is just the point C on the original graph

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh i think I get it C' is what we worked out

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

I can walk you through a sample calculation if it makes things easier?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Sure I guess

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so C = the original point on the graph = (6,3) C' = point C shifted up to get (6,8)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

OH I FORGOT THE ADD 5

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

OK

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

point G = (6,-3)

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so C-G distance = sqrt( (6-6)^2 + (3 - (-3)^2 ) = sqrt(6^2) = 6

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So do (6,8) + (6,-3) <--- after I work them out?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Subtract the X's and y's then square them then add them together then square root them?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

so C' = (6,8) and G' = (6,2) so calculate the distance between these

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yeah basically, just be careful with parentheses

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

I can work it out on graph paper so you at least have an answer key to look at

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

That would be ideal XD

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So it should be (0,6) right (Not done just saying am I doing good so far)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Oh wait gotta square them hold up

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

(0,36) right?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

your distance should be a single number not a (x,y) point

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yeahIwasrightthefirstime Cg is 6

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok so the answer is just 36?

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

To C'G'

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

6, because you take the square root at the end

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:
4 weeks ago

Bearclaws72:

Oh true missed that XD

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

^ worked out solution just in case I fall asleep on you

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

JESUS CHRIST I HAVE DONE BARELY ANYTHING

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

drawing & labeling a diagram will help keep your coordinates straight

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

So now since you did the work Smh now I have to plot them? Right

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

yeah basically (make sure you understand my work though, that's the important part)

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

I memorized the steps for next time thank yew for teaching me them

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

I will see if I can do the next one on my own

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Is shadow good at math?

4 weeks ago
Vocaloid:

I think they should be able to handle this ^^

4 weeks ago
Bearclaws72:

Ok thanks for the help Voca you are a lifesaver
