ΔPQR has vertices at P(2, 4), Q(3, 8) and R(5, 4). A similarity transformation maps ΔPQR to ΔABC, whose vertices are A(2, 4), B(5.5, 18), and C(12.5, 4). What is the scale factor of the dilation in the similarity transformation?
A) 2
B) 2.5
C) 4
D) 3.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start by trying at least read the response plot the points find the lengths scale factor is the ratio of the original to the new

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm gonna go on a limb here and say is it B? Because that seems to be the only one that makes sense to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@TillLindemann All your posts make the excuse of 'being confused' The best way of NOT being confused is to learn from what you are being told and MORE importantly TRY what you are being told  if you get it wrong, at least you will learn If you wait for the answer (even if it is someone explaining every step with you not contributing) then you will be confused about this stuff for ever

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am confused simply because I do not understand anything regarding Geometry. Sure I try and understand what you people are saying to me, but it generally does not make sense.
