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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so we have a square with a line through the middle right? dw:1432769367326:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And 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 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for example...the coordinate (1,1) multiplied by 1/4 would be \(\large (\frac{1}{4}, \frac{1}{4})\) make sense so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good :) so the new square we will have is *gonna try and draw it in the previous one to show this better* dw:1432769675980:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1SOOOOOO if we draw a line through the center of the new square what do we see? dw:1432769815446:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we see that AB relationship whould based on x and y ? i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so what relationship will that line have with line AB in the drawing below?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They are the same line...that is the relationship :D
