Let me tell you how to go about shearing the triangle

When it's x-axis invariant in a shear, it means the shear

When it's y-axis invariant in a shear, it means the shear

Now that that's clear, let's proceed

Shear factor = [Distance Moved By the Point] divided by [Perpendicular Distance from the Invariant Line]

The shear factor does not change.

And, we have the perpendicular distance from the invariant line.

Now, we can find the distance moved by the point.

Point k (1 , 1)

Shear factor = [Distance Moved By the Point] divided by [Perpendicular Distance from the Invariant Line]

3 = x / 1

x = 3 .. So, the image of k will move 3 units to the left on the x-axis (it will move + 3 on the x-axis)

The co-ordinates for image of k ... (3+1 , 1) = (4 , 1)

(Notice, y doesn't change because shear is parallel to x ... Distance moved by the point is then added to the original co-ordinate of the point to get where to plot it...If you get what I mean..?)

Now do the same for the other 2 points.

Point M (1,3)

Shear factor = [Distance Moved By the Point] divided by [Perpendicular Distance from the Invariant Line]

3 = x / 3

x = 9 ... (9+1, 3) = (10,3)

Point L (5,1)

Shear factor = [Distance Moved By the Point] divided by [Perpendicular Distance from the Invariant Line]

3 = x / 1

x = 3 ... (3+5, 1) = (8,1)

Hope it's clear, if not, then just ask

That was really clear, understoood it

thankssssss alotttt

hey if the x axis is the invarient in a stretch, then will the stretch be parallel to the x axis?

Basically,

For Stretch.

y-axis is invariant --> stretch is parallel to x-axis.

x-axis is invariant --> stretch is parallel to y-axis.

For Shear,

y-axis is invariant --> shear is parallel to y-axis.

x-axis is invariant --> shear is parallel to x-axis.

Hope that helps

i cant understand if its a shear or a stretch, how to identify it?

thanks

Well if it was a stretch, the triangle would have usually lengthened in one direction only - either parallel to the x-axis or parallel to the y-axis.

In case of a shear, as in the question, the object being sheared would appear to be made of different layers and each layer would have slid a different amount relative to a fixed line.

Simply speaking, if it was a stretch, the co-ordinates of triangle X would be (-1,2), (-4,2) and (-4,7).

However it is also important to accept the possibility that a stretch can take place in more than one direction but fortunately or unfortunately, I don't think that an IGCSE student is required to think to such an extent in that perspective as I've never seen a past paper question on transformations with an object being simultaneously stretched in two or more directions.

So, think simple !!!

Hope that helped !!!

Cheers !!! :good:
