Dilation of a Line Segment

Teachers can use this file to introduce the idea of similarity by looking at the dilation of several line segments. The spreadsheet feature of Geogebra allows for quick checking of ratios of segments that are already named in the diagram. Segments are named in the program with lower case letters.
