# Lesson 8

Moves in Parallel

Let’s transform some lines.

### Problem 1

- Draw parallel lines \(AB\) and \(CD\).
- Pick any point \(E\). Rotate \(AB\) 90 degrees clockwise around \(E\).
- Rotate line \(CD\) 90 degrees clockwise around \(E\).
- What do you notice?

### Problem 2

Use the diagram to find the measures of each angle. Explain your reasoning.

- \(m{\angle ABC}\)
- \(m{\angle EBD}\)
- \(m{\angle ABE}\)

### Problem 3

Points \(P\) and \(Q\) are plotted on a line.

- Find a point \(R\) so that a 180-degree rotation with center \(R\) sends \(P\) to \(Q\) and \(Q\) to \(P\).
- Is there more than one point \(R\) that works for part a?

### Problem 4

In the picture triangle \(A’B’C’\) is an image of triangle \(ABC\) after a rotation. The center of rotation is \(D\).

- What is the length of side \(B’C’\)? Explain how you know.
- What is the measure of angle \(B\)? Explain how you know.
- What is the measure of angle \(C\)? Explain how you know.

### Problem 5

The point \((\text-4,1)\) is rotated 180 degrees counterclockwise using center \((0,0)\). What are the coordinates of the image?

A:

\((\text-1,\text-4)\)

B:

\((\text-1,4)\)

C:

\((4,1)\)

D:

(From Unit 1, Lesson 5.)
\((4,\text-1)\)
