Use the slider to control "k" which is the scale factor of the dilation of triangle ABC to triangle A'B'C'.

1) If k = 1, how does triangle ABC compare to triangle A'B'C'?
2) If k = 2, how does triangle ABC compare to triangle A'B'C'?
3) If k = .5, how does triangle ABC compare to triangle A'B'C'?
4) What is the difference between dilating the triangle k = 2 and k = -2?
