Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it is 2/5 once simplified

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2simply take the ratio of sides of image and preimage : \[\large \dfrac{7.5}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes , I did and simplified I got 2/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did the 7.5/3...3/7.5...becomes 2/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\large \dfrac{7.5}{3} = \dfrac{75}{30} = \dfrac{5}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did it like this one... Preimage ABCD was dilated to produce image AꞌBꞌCꞌDꞌ. What is the scale factor of the similar figures? Enter the answer in simplest form. Two quadrilaterals labeled A B C D and Aprime, Bprime, Cprime, Dprime. Quadrilateral A B C D is larger than the other quadrilateral, which is to the right of quadrilateral A B C D. Side B C is labeled twelve, and side Bprime, Cprime is labeled nine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it was explained to me that I needed to reverse the numerator and the denominator .... now confused :{

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just a convention always put the "image" side on top

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... so i need to go back and fix the other as well then or it will be incorrect?.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2whats your answer for the other one with quadrilateral ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0simplified 3/4.... but that was doing the switching thing bc I originally had 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, but what is the reason I flip the one and not the other? I just want to make sure I understand it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no wait, in the first question, the bigger triangle is image, yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it reads as if the ABC is the original and the other is the dilation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if it is image on top the the first would be 12/9 simplified to 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Image = final picture after dilation preimage = original picture before dilation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the image or original is the numerator the copy the denominator right?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2again, image is final picture after dilation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2preimage is original picture before dilation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no I said it wrong meant to say it the other way... now I am confusing myself...lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for first question 5/2 is correct for second question 3/4 is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just seems as if it should be the other way around :) I got it now. I just need to pay close attention to which one is the original and which is the copy. I think if I look at it that way vs. image/preimage I get it a bit better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2actually scaale factor = preimage/image makes more sense

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because you can get the dimensions of image by simply multiplying the original dimensions by scale factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and always put the original on top and copy on bottom right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2always put image on top original on bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you just need to do couple of problems before seeing why it makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok,ok, I got this now :) Thank you. sometimes it is the smallest of things that trip me up but it just takes putting it in to a way my brain accepts the info without twisting it...yay for dyslexia...again thank you :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this trips everyone in the start, things will make sense by practice eventually
