# Deciphering transformation

## Overview

In the geogebra applet below I would like you to create a triangle.
I would like you to transform that triangle with the following functions. when you are done you should have three colored triangles and one black triangle which is your original.
Green: (x, y) -----> (-x, y)
Orange: (x, y)-----> (x+2, y-5)
Purple: (x, y)-----> (-y, x)
Once you have the four triangles go ahead and measure their interior angles as well as their sides.

## Applet

## What do you notice about the side lengths of the four triangles? Did you expect this? Will this happen to any triangle or is yours special somehow? Justify your answer

## What do you notice about the angles of the four triangles? Did you expect this?Will this happen to any triangle or is yours special somehow? Justify your answer

## Transformation type

What transformation is green?

## Transformation type

What type of transformation is orange?

## Transformation type

What type of transformation is purple?

## Changing green

What would be different about the transformation of green if it's function was (x, y)---->(x, -y)

## Changing Purple

What would happen to the purple transformation if it was changed to (x, y)----> (y, -x)
