1 Notes Dilations

2 Definitions Dilation - a transformation in which every point P has an image P' placed on OP so that and OP' = k * OP Center of Dilation – the point from which an original figure is dilated. Scale Factor - the ratio of the image length to the corresponding original length.

3 Scale Factor If the scaled factor is greater than 1, then it is an enlargement (k>1). If the scaled factor is equal to 1, then it is a congruent figure (k=1) If the scale factor is less than 1, then it is a reduction (k<1).

4 Corresponding distances 4242 = = 2 Image Distance Original Distance = k Scale Factor 2 > 1 This dilation is an enlargement.

5 Corresponding distances 2323 = Image Distance Original Distance = k Scale Factor 2/3 < 1 This dilation is an reduction.

6 Example: 1.Rectangle W’X’Y’Z’ is the image of rectangle WXYZ after a dilation. a.Find the scale factor of the dilation. b.Tell whether the image is a reduction or an enlargement.

7 Example: 2.

8 Example: 3.

9 Reduction, Enlargement, or Congruent? 1.K = 4 2.K = ½ 3.K = 1 4>1 Enlargement ½ <1 Reduction Congruent

10 Matching A.K = ¼ B.K = 3 C.K = 2/7 D.K = 1 E.K = 5 F.K = 3/8 Reduction Enlargement Congruent

11 7. scale factor 2

12 8. scale factor ¼

13 8. scale factor 1/3
