A trapezoid is drawn on a grid with vertices at P (5, 7), Q (2, 7), R (2, 3), and S (8, 3). Trapezoid UVWX will be drawn similar to Trapezoid PQRS with side UV corresponding to side PQ. The point (2, 2) will be the location of vertex U and point (8, 2) will be the location of point V.
What will be the coordinates of vertex X? Show all your work or explain your reasoning.
My work:
Point X will be (16, 11), because this follows the doubled similarity ratio demonstrated by points U and V. I counted the rise over run of the original trapezoid (4, 5), and doubled it so it became (8, 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it's (20, 10). (16, 11) doesn't look right.
