If the origin is shifted to the point

Question:

If the origin is shifted to the point (-3, -2) by a translation of the axes, find the new coordinates of the point (3, -5).

 

Solution:

 Let the new origin be (h, k) = (-3, -2) and (x, y) = (3, -5) be the given point.

Let the new coordinates be $(X, Y)$

We use the transformation formula:

$x=X+h$ and $y=Y+k$

$\Rightarrow 3=X-3$ and $-5=Y-2$

$\Rightarrow X=6$ and $Y=-3$

Thus, the new coordinates are (6, -3)
