Circle A has center of (2, 8), and a radius of 2 and circle B has a center of (5, 4), and a radius of 10. What steps will help show that circle A is similar to circle B Translate circle A using the rule (x − 3, y + 4). <--- My answer Rotate circle A 270° about the center. Reflect circle A over the line x=1 Dilate circle A by a scale factor of 5.

    I think it is the last one because when you dilate something, it gets bigger. when a circle with a radius of 2 is dialated by 5, it becomes a circle with a radius of 10

    then, you can say the circles are congruent.

    not 100%, buttttt.... when you translate (the first answer) you just move the points. That doesn't really prove anything except that the first circle can fit in the second one.

    the definition of similar is that it has sides(or radius) that correspond to an equal porportion.
