Translation of the Plane
The red quadrilateral is the image of the blue quadrilateral under translation by the purple vector. Explore the effect of the vector by moving its terminal point. Similarly, adjust the shape of the original blue quadrilateral by moving its vertices.
A translation of the plane is an isometry that moves each point of the plane a distance and in a direction given by a specified vector.
