## What are the 5 transformations in geometry?

There are five different transformations in math: Dilation — The image is a larger or smaller version of the preimage; “shrinking” or “enlarging.” Reflection — The image is a mirrored preimage; “a flip.” Rotation — The image is the preimage rotated around a fixed point; “a turn.”

## What are some transformations in geometry?

Here are the most common types: Translation is when we slide a figure in any direction. Reflection is when we flip a figure over a line. Rotation is when we rotate a figure a certain degree around a point. Dilation is when we enlarge or reduce a figure.

## What are the rules for transformations in geometry?

- rule for 270° rotation.
- rule for 360° rotation.
- rule for reflection across the line y=x.
- rule for reflection across the line y=-x.
- rule for translation a units to the right.

## What is a real life example of a geometric transformations?

the movement of an aircraft as it moves across the sky. the lever action of a tap (faucet) sewing with a sewing machine. punching decorative studs into belts.

## What is an example of dilation in real life?

What is an example of dilation in real life? Dilation is used in eye exams so that the eye doctor can view the patient’s eye better. After a while it will slowly reduce in size and return back to normal.

## What are the three basic types of function transformations?

A transformation takes a basic function and changes it slightly with predetermined methods. This change will cause the graph of the function to move, shift, or stretch, depending on the type of transformation. The four main types of transformations are translations, reflections, rotations, and scaling.
