Question:The definition of dilation in geometry is : Dilation is a similarity transformation in which a figure is enlarged or reduced using a scale factor 0, without altering the center. When you want to dilate a coordinate, you take the cooardinate and multiply by the scale factor. However, what if you do want to change the altering center? How do you perform dilation then? i am referring to this website: http://www.icoachmath.com/sitemap/dilation.html

Answers:You'll need to do a coordinate system transformation such that the center changes from (x,y,z) to (x',y',z').

Question:Can anyone explain to me how to figure out the new measurements of a 10 by 15 rectangle if it were to be enlarged by a scale factor of 6/5? I need to know how to find the individual new length and width of the figure Thanks for any help you can provide!

Answers:i think its 12 by 18

Question:Hi, I am currently worried about my project in math. We are supposed to find an object and enlarge it using scale factor. I used a box of playing cards. The scale factor was 1 to 5. In order to make the model five times as big, I multipled the length, height and width by five and built the model with those measurements. It's really big though so I'm worried I did it wrong. Did I?

Answers:Nope. You did it exactly right. It seems SO big because the scale factor of five is actually multiplying the volume by 125. So... that's why you were worried :)
