Question

The figure shows a pair of parallel line segments on a coordinate grid:

A coordinate grid is shown from positive 6 to negative 6 on the x-axis and from positive 6 to negative 6 on the y-axis. A line segment EF is shown with E as ordered pair negative 5, negative 1 and F as ordered pair negative 2, negative 1. Another line segment GH is shown with G as ordered pair negative 5, negative 2 and H as ordered pair negative 2, negative 2.

The line segments are translated 2 units to the left to form E'F' and G'H'. Which statement describes E'F' and G'H'?

Line segments E'F' and G'H' intersect at (−2, 0) and are two times farther apart than EF and GH.
Line segments E'F' and G'H' intersect at (0, −2) and are two times farther apart than EF and GH. .
Line segments E'F' and G'H' do not intersect and are the same distance apart as EF and GH.
Line segments E'F' and G'H' do not intersect and are closer together than EF and GH.

  • The correct answer for this question is this one: "Line segments E'F' and G'H' intersect at (0, −2) and are two times farther apart than EF and GH."

    The line segments are translated 2 units to the left to form E'F' and G'H'. The statement that describes E'F' and G'H' is that Line segments E'F' and G'H' intersect at (0, −2) and are two times farther apart than EF and GH.

    Hope this helps answer your question and have a nice day ahead.
  • Answer:

    B.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Line segments E'F' and G'H' intersect at (0, −2) and are two times farther apart than EF and GH.
