△JKL is mapped to △J'K'L' using the rules  (x, y)→(x+2, y+3)  followed by  (x, y)→(2x, y) .

 

Which statement describes the relationship between △JKL and △J'K'L'?

△JKL is congruent to △J'K'L' because the rules represent a rotation followed by a reflection, which is a sequence of rigid motions.

△JKL is not congruent to △J'K'L' because the rules do not represent a sequence of rigid motions.

△JKL is congruent to △J'K'L' because the rules represent a translation followed by a reflection, which is a sequence of rigid motions.

△JKL is congruent to △J'K'L' because the rules represent a translation followed by a rotation, which is a sequence of rigid motions.

When you double the  x  coordinates, it changes the shape of the triangle. So

 

△JKL is not congruent to △J'K'L' because the rules do not represent a sequence of rigid motions.

The x coordinate of the vertices on the green triangle are double those of the orange triangle.
