CCSS IP Math II 5.2.1 Example 1
Is the following transformation a dilation? Justify your answer using the properties of dilations.
- Verify that shape, orientation, and angles have been preserved from the preimage to the image.
- Verify that the corresponding sides are parallel.
- Verify that the distances of the corresponding sides have changed by a common scale factor, .
- Verify that corresponding vertices are collinear with the center of dilation, .
- Draw conclusions.
