Use the tools to perform a **translation** that will take the original figure *GHIJ* onto the image *G'H'I'J'*.
Describe the translation that will take the original figure onto the image.

Use the tools to perform a **translation and then a rotation (in that order)** that will take the original figure *ABC* onto the image *A'B'C*'.
Describe the translation and rotation that will take the original figure onto the image.

Use the tools to perform a sequence of rigid transformations (a **translation, then a rotation and then a reflection -- in that order**) that will take the original figure

*RSTU*onto the image

*R'S'T'U'*. Describe the translation, rotation, and reflection that will take the original figure onto the image.

## No question to do right here, just some new information about describing rotations:

*specific angle measure*when doing a rotation. Here is another way to describe a rotation:

__Rotate figure__(We would still need to do a reflection to finish this problem, but we're only concerned about the rotation phrasing for this example.)

*ABC*about point*A*so that point*C*coincides with*C'*. (see picture below)Write a sequence of rigid transformations that will take figure *VWXYZ *onto the image *V'W'X'Y'Z'*.
**No tools this time**, just imagine what the transformations would be. __Describe the rotation in general terms __(not a specific angle measure) like the previous example above.
