    Well, you would want to find the common ratio between any two line segments on the preimage and the image. Are there any straight line segments on the image and preimage that you can compare?

    Since the preimage is blue and that one is larger, you actually shrunk. And since you shrunk, it's the other way around, 1/2 as opposed to 2. If blue was the image and red was the preimage then the answer would be 2.
