## anonymous one year ago The image of polygon MNOP after a similarity transformation is polygon WXYZ. Each side of MNOP is 2 times as long as the corresponding side of WXYZ. What is the scale factor of the dilation in the similarity transformation? A.4 B.0.5 C.2 D.0.25

Scale of transformation =$$\Large \frac{size~of~image}{size~of~original}$$ If the orientation of line segments are reversed, the sign of the scale is negative. Example: |dw:1434371282332:dw|
