## Translations in any direction

You can translate a shape horizontally and vertically at the same time, which will cause the shape to move to a different
**x** and **y** position. You do this using a vector with both **x** and **y** values.

In this diagram, you can translate the shape by:

- the vector
**(-7, 2)**, moving the shape left by 7 units and up by 2. - the vector
**(1, -5)**, moving the shape right by 1 unit and down by 5.
