# ~Transformations and similarity!!!

## Transformation is an operation that maps an original geometric figure and similarity is the state or fact of being similar...!!

### I'm going to teach you all about rotation,dilation,translation,reflection, and similarity!!!!:))

Rotation is an transformation of a figure that is rotated, or turned at any given point. A rotation does not change the shape or size of a figure.Therefore the preimage and image are congruent.Here is an example of rotation below. Just think of rotation as turning.

# Dilation!!!!!!!

Dilation uses a scale factor to enlarge or reduce a figure.Which means the figure gets smaller or bigger.The shape is the same,but the size is different....

The dilation picture above size of the shape changes.

# ~Translation!!!**

Translation slides a figure form one place to another without turning it.The sides of the figures are congruent.Think of sliding when you see translation.

# Reflection!

Reflection is an mirror image of a figure.The point of the image and preimage are the same distance from the line of reflection.The figure will flip during reflection.

# Similarity!!

The triangles above are similar when you compare the corresponding sides they equal.
