How do you solve a problem like this? Polygon ABCD is dilated, rotated, and translated to form polygon A′B′C′D′. The endpoints of AB¯¯¯¯¯ are at (0, -7) and (8, 8), and the endpoints of A'B'¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ are at (6, -6) and (2, 1.5). What is the scale factor of the dilation? (There are no answer choices)

    Use the distance formula to find the distance between A and B. Use the distance formula to find the distance between A' and B' \[scale~factor=\frac{ d _{A'B'} }{ d _{AB} }\]
