Square RSTU is shown below with a line AB drawn through its center. If the square is dilated using a scale factor of one over four and a line is drawn through the center of the new dilated figure, what relationship will that line have with line AB in the drawing below?

    Okay, so we have a square with a line through the middle right? |dw:1432769367326:dw|

    And then that same square is dilated by a factor of \(\large \dfrac{1}{4}\) So that would be multiplying every coordinate by \(\large \dfrac{1}{4}\) I have labeled the coordinates for this reason :)

    So for example...the coordinate (1,1) multiplied by 1/4 would be \(\large (\frac{1}{4}, \frac{1}{4})\) make sense so far?

    we see that AB relationship whould based on x and y ? i think

    Well I would just say that they are the same line...since lines are never ending I dont believe we need to subject it to an 'xy' relationship For a square, no matter what factor you scale it by...the line going straight through the original center will also always go through the "new" center as the same line

    oh ok so what relationship will that line have with line AB in the drawing below?
