PLEASE HELP ME. I WILL GIVE YOU A MEDAL. Polygon MNOPQ is dilated by a scale factor of 0.8 with the origin as the center of dilation, resulting in the image M′N′O′P′Q′. If M = (2, 4) and N = (3, 5), what is the slope of M'N'¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ? √2 1 √3 √1/2

    Ok. First, a dilation occurs, so apply the dilations to the points M and N. Remember the formula is (kx, ky), with k as the scale factor. What would M' and N' be?

    Hi @javierpratdesaba How do you apply the formula (kx,ky) to M and N I understand K is the scale factor.. In this problem it is .8 However I'm still a little confused.

    You would multiply the x and y coordinates in each of the points (M and N) by 0.8.

    Wait, that's not the answer though. You still need to use the slope formula to find the slope between M' and N'
