Translation Mapping:
A mapping of a plane in which each point of the plane moves in the same direction by the segments, all congruent to a given segment (equal distance) is called a translation.
Translation moves every point of a figure the same distance in the same direction.
Examples:

Find the coordinates of the image of (2,7), under the translation defined by (x,y) ® (x+2, y+1).
T(x,y) ® (x+2, y+1).
T(2,7) ® (2+2, 7+1).
The coordinates of the image is (4,8)
 A quadrilateral has vertices A(4,3), B(2,4), C(1,1) and D(3,1). Find the coordinates of the image after translation (x,y) ® (x+5,y2).
(x,y) ® (x+2, y+1).
A(4,3) ® (1, 1)
B(2,4) ® (3, 2)
C(1,1) ® (4, 1)
D(3,1) ® (2, 1)
