Set compass to a separation of 7cm and with centre
Z, construct an arc above X.
Set compass to a separation of 5.5 cm and with
centre X, construct a second arc to intersect the
first arc. The intersection of the two arcs is the

## Note from the diagram above that if object P Translated by 1

unit down and 4 units to the right, then this is represented by a
Translation T = (4,-1). which would map P onto Q.

## So: BCL is mapped unto HFG by a translation T

represented by: T = (4,-1)
