Hi! I need help with this math homework question:

If you had a triangle that has the vertices (-2, 1), (0, -5), and (1. 2) and you had to shift that triangle 5 units left and 4 units down, how would you find the vertices of the shifted triangle?

  1. easy. Just -5 to x and -4 to y:

    (-2,1) -> (-7,-3)

    and similarly for the other points.
