Using graph paper, create a triangle and label the vertices. Determine two scale factors you would like to use and create one triangle that is smaller than the original and one triangle that is larger than the original. In your discussion post include the vertices of all three triangles, along with the scale factor for each dilated triangle. i forgot everything about this unit help?

    Hmm rather easy: |dw:1438188206144:dw| To make this half you would do: 10/2 = 5 10/2 = 5 6/2 = 3 So your new triangle would be.... |dw:1438188288614:dw|

    You might need to find another scale factor though!

    Because you need a triangle that is also larger than the original...I assume you know how to do that right?
