# Similarity and Transformation

### all you need to know about this lesson

## What is Transformation...

Transformation is a series of movement in which a image is dilated, translated, reflected, and/or rotated.

## Transformation you need to know for this lesson...

### Translation: A transformation in which a image is being moved.

### Dilation: A transformation in which an image is changing its size.

### Rotation: A transformation in which the figure is being rotated. It could be rotated in the degrees of 90, 180, and 270 through normal, clockwise, and/or counterclockwise.

## How do you know if a image is similar...

### You can tell if a figure is similar by finding the transformations that are being used. You can also find if a figure is similar if a figure can be obtain from the first figure through a sequence of tranformations.

How to find similar shapes...

It's simple to find if the shapes our similar or not; all you have to do is to find all the transformation that is being used in a given problem, then you find out if the second figure is obtain meaning if reverse the second figure of tsecond figure of its transformation, will it be the same exact shape and size.
