A **transformation** is a general term for four specific ways to manipulate the shape of a point, a line, or shape. The original shape of the object is called the pre-image and the final shape and position of the object is the image under the **transformation**. Types of **transformations in math**. Translation. Reflection.

Also to know is, what are the four transformations in maths?

**The four types of transformations which you will encounter during this topic are:**

- Rotation.
- Reflection.
- Translation.
- Enlargement/Re-sizing.

What is the transformation equation?

A function **transformation** takes whatever is the basic function f (x) and then "transforms" it (or "translates" it), which is a fancy way of saying that you change the **formula** a bit and thereby move the graph around.

What are the translations in math?

**Translation** Definition. **Translation** is a term used in **geometry** to describe a function that moves an object a certain distance. The object is not altered in any other way. In a **translation**, every point of the object must be moved in the same direction and for the same distance.
