Q1.
What are congruent shapes?
3d shapes
Different sized shapes in the same position
Correct answer: Same shape and size but in a different position
Shapes with the same number of sides but dfferent angles
Q2.
Which of the following statements is correct?
Only quadrilateral shapes can be translated
The size of a shape gets larger when you translate it
The size of a shape gets smaller when you translate it
Correct answer: When a shape is translated, the size does not change
Q3.
If a shape has translated right 6 spaces and up 3 spaces it has also moved....
left 6 spaces and up 3 spaces
Right 3 spaces and up 6 spaces
right 6 spaces and down 3 spaces
Correct answer: up 3 spaces and right 6 spaces
Q4.
Which of the following statements is incorrect?
Correct answer: In geometry translation means changing the size of the shape
In geometry translation means moving a shape into a different position
In geometry we can translate shapes up, down, left or right
When a shape is translated every point of the shape must move the same distance and the same direction
Q5.
When translating shapes every point of the shape must move
Correct answer: the same distance and the same direction
the same distance but not the same direction
to the left
to the right
