Presentation Transcript

If you change each dimension of a figure, the figure will be similar only larger or smaller.

8 in

Divide each dimension by 3

3 in

5 in

15 in

Double each dimension

4 in

16 in

6 in

12 in

What is the effect on area and perimeter?

Ex) triple each dimension of rectangle

15 in

5 in

2 in

6 in

The effect on the area can be found by multiplying the changes in each dimension.

The effect on the perimeter is the same as the change for each dimension (only if each dimension is changed by the same factor)

If both diagonals of a rhombus are doubled, what is the effect on the area and perimeter?

If each dimension of a triangle is divided by 3, what is the effect on the area and perimeter?

Area: 2 x 2 = multiplied by 4

Perimeter: multiplied by 2

Area: x = multiplied by

Perimeter: multiplied by

The dimensions of a triangle are changed proportionally such that its area changes by a factor of . How were the dimensions changed?

Area: x = , so the dimensions were multiplied by

The formula for circles only uses one variable, r.

However, the radius represents both the “base” and the “height” of a circle.

Ex) If the radius of a circle is doubled, then the…

area is _________

perimeter is ________

r
