3. Tell whether the transformation is a dilation.

A(0, 4) B(5,5) C(3,3) A’(0, 8) B’(10, 10) C’(6, 6)

Use the properties of similar figures to answer 1 and 2:

1. A rectangular house is 32 ft wide and 68 ft long. On a blueprint, the width is 8 in. Find the length on the blueprint.

2. Karen enlarged a 3 in. wide by 5 in. tall photo into a poster. If the poster is 2.25 ft wide, how tall is it?

4. Dilate the figure by a scale factor of 2 with the origin as the center of dilation. What are the coordinates of the image? A(2,4) B(5,6) C(6,1)

Learn to make comparisons between and find dimensions of scale drawings and actual objects.

reduction

enlargement

A scale drawing is a two-dimensional drawing that accurately represents an object. The scale drawing is mathematically similar to the object.

A scale gives the ratio of the dimensions in the drawing to the dimensions of the object. All dimensions are reduced or enlarged using the same scale. Scales can use the same units or different units.

Reading Math

The scale a:b is read “a to b.” For example, the scale 1 cm:3 ft is read “one centimeter to three feet.”

B. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 2 inches. The scale is 1 in:4 ft. What is the actual length of the object?

=

Find the cross products.

x = 8

Solve the proportion.

The actual length is 8 ft.

A scale drawing that is smaller than the actual object is called a reduction. A scale drawing can also be larger than the object. In this case, the drawing is referred to as an enlargement.

Under a 10,000:1 microscope view, a fiber appears to have length of 1mm. What is its actual length?

10,000 x = 1 1

Find the cross products.

x = 0.0001

Solve the proportion.

The actual length of the fiber is 0.0001 mm.

A drawing that uses the scale in. = 1 ft is said to be in in. scale. Similarly, a drawing that uses the scale in. = 1 ft is in in. scale.
