# What characteristics are maintained? (A Transformations Exploration)

## Consider the following transformations performed on parallelogram ABCD with coordinates A(2, -2), B(4, 4), C(12, 4), and D(10, -2):

1. a reflection over the x-axis
2. a rotation of 270 degrees about the origin
3. a dilation of scale factor 3 about the origin
4. a translation to the right 5 and down 3

**Make predictions about how the lengths, perimeter, area, and angle measures will change under each transformations.**Discuss you predictions with your group.## Parallelogram ABCD

## Verify your predictions.

What do you notice about which transformations preserve size and/or shape?

## 1. Reflection over the x-axis.

## 2. Rotation 270 degrees about the origin.

## 3. Dilation of scale factor 3 about the origin

## 4. Translate right 5 units and down 3 units.
