5. At the half-time show, a marching band marched in formation. The lead drummer started at a point with coordinates (–4, –7) and moved 4 steps up and 2 steps left.
a. Write a rule to describe the translation.
I think it is (x,y)-->(x+2,y+4)is this right?

  • Math Algebra -

    "2 steps left" ---> -2

    so (x,y) ---> (x-2, y+4)
