Geometric Dilation

This worksheet is intended to explore dilations of a geometric figure with factors ranging from [-2, 3]. The distances from each vertex can be compared for both images to see that the distance of the vertices of the image are n-times the distance from the pre-image. You can also compare the coordinates to come to the conclusion that (x, y)----->(nx, ny).
