    Parallelogram RSTU is constructed with line AB drawn through its center. If the parallelogram is dilated using a scale factor of 4 and a line is drawn through the center of the new dilated figure, what relationship will the new line have with line AB? Explain your reasoning using complete sentences.

    Basically, figure out if AB has scaled 4x with the new parallelogram. If not, find out how much it has scale by.

    |dw:1433909806582:dw| i think you should draw AB like this. that way you form triangles. and since they are similar because when you dilate, the angles, should stay the same. so i think AB is also dilated by a factpr of 4

    remebr the sides are similar triangles are proportional
