    \[(2,-1)=(8a,-4a) \text{ holds if } (2,-1) \text{ is a dilation of } (8,-4) \\ \text{ this means we should find the same } a \text{ such that } 2=8a \text{ and } -1=-4a \] and if we don't than it is not a dilation

    solving both of those give a=1/4 since both give the same a value then (2,-1) is a dilation of (8,-4)

    \[(2,-2)=(8a,-4a)\] see if you get the same a here for both equations 2=8a and -2=-4a
