Two rectangles are similar. Rectangle ABCD has a length of 5 in and a width of 10 in. Rectangle ABCD is dilated by a scale factor of 4 to form rectangle FGHJ. Answer these questions using the information provided:
1. How is the area affected by the dilation?
2. How is the perimeter affected by the dilation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to get the length and the width of rectangle of FGHJ, just multiply by 4 from the length and the width of rectangle ABCD. so, l = 4 * 5 = 20 w = 4 * 10 = 40 now, to get area use the formula : area = length * width = 20 * 40 = .... in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for perimeter of rectangle FGHJ, use the formula : perimeter = 2(l+w) = 2(20+40) = 2 * 60 = ... in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, that's right sorry, the unit for area must be in squared not in :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can call me '123', by the way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oppss.. my eyes still want to bed, @123 :) area = 20 * 40 = 80 in^2 not 60 (sorry) perimeter = 2(20+40) = 2(60) = 120 in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1opss.. 20 * 40 = 800 not 80 my stupid "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oK. But 1 is asking how the area was affected by the dilation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it can be : area = 16 times of the area of before do dilated

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or '16 times the original area'?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for area, you square the amount of times it changed. like, if the scale factor is 3, 3^2 = 9. so the area would be 9 times greater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you're doing volume, you cube it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer would be is 16 times larger than before?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is the scale factor. perimeter: x^1, area: x^2, volume: x^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks. i get it, volume is cubed, area is squared. so the perimeter is .. um..

aripotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so since the scale factor is 4... 4^1 = 4. perimeter is 4x the original. is this making sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahhhh! I GET IT NOW! WOW. I'M SO SLOW. I APOLOGIZE TO YOU BOTH.
