# Transforming Triangles

Draw a coordinate plane on graph paper, then draw the △

*ABC*with vertices*A*(−4,2);*B*(−2,5); and*C*(−7,2).In which quadrant is △

*ABC*?Multiply both coordinates for points

*A*,*B*, and*C*by 2, and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*ABC*? (Consider the size and position of the triangle.)Multiply both coordinates for points

*A*,*B*, and*C*by −1, and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*ABC*?Multiply both coordinates for points

*A*,*B*, and*C*by −2 and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*ABC*?

On your coordinate plane, draw the triangle

*LMN*with vertices*L*(−4,−6);*M*(−2,−2); and*N*(−6,0).In which quadrant is △

*LMN*?Multiply both coordinates for points

*L*,*M*, and*N*by 12, and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*LMN*?Multiply both coordinates for points

*L*,*M*, and*N*by −1, and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*LMN*?Multiply both coordinates for points

*L*,*M*, and*N*by −12, and draw the resulting triangle. How does the new triangle compare to △*LMN*?
