RSV has coordinates R(2,1),S(3,2), and V(2,6). A translation maps points R to R' at (-4,8). What are the coordinates for S' for this translation?

Can't understand this one please help me.

R -> R' shifted (2,1) by (-6,7) to (-4,8)

Just apply the translation (-6,7) to the other points:

(3,2) + (-6,7) = (-3,9)

(2,6) + (-6,7) = (-4,13)
