# What Is Translation On A Graph?

### On the coefficients of x2 andy1

The coefficients of x2 and y2 are not very high. The number must be greater than the negative of the squares of half the coefficients. If a number is positive, the point will be to the right of x1, while a negative number will be to the left. If b is positive, y1 + b will be above y1, while if b is negative, it will below.

### On the graphing of translations

There are other stumbling blocks to correctly graphing translations of functions, including the issue of putting in 0s in the single equation. Keeping straight how some values are inverse, backwards or exactly as they appear is a common practice.

### A remark on the structure of graphs

A graph is equivalent to a base graph moving in the direction of the y- axis. A graph is translated by moving points on it.

### The x constants

The constants affecting the x have not changed. They are not what you think they should be. The "x divided b" that really means divide each x by b has been changed to be written as "b times x" so that it really means divide each x by b.

The "x minus c" is a way of saying add c to the x-coordinate. The chart says that the vertical and horizontal translations are normal. Read the digression above for an explanation of why.

### Passive translation

A translation is a geometric transformation that moves a space by the same distance in a given direction. A translation can be seen as the addition of a constant vector to every point or the change of the origin of the coordinate system. Any translation is an isometry.

A horizontal translation is a transformation that results in a graph that is equivalent to shifting the base graph left or right. A graph is translated by moving points on it. lattice groups are finitely generated and are part of the three-dimensional translation group.

The entire group is generated by a finite set. While geometric translation is often seen as an active process that changes the position of a geometric object, a similar result can be achieved by a passive transformation that moves the coordinate system but leaves the object fixed. A translation of axes is known as a passive version of an active geometric translation.

### Mini-lessons and Translation

The mini-lesson was designed to target the fascinating concept of horizontal translation. The math journey around horizontal translation began with a student already knowing what they were doing and then went on to create a new idea. It is easy to grasp and will stay with them forever, because it is done in a way that is easy to understand.
