    Linear Dilation of 2 results in a factor of 2 for all linear elements. Linear Dilation of 2 results in a factor of 2^2 = 4 for all area elements. Linear Dilation of 2 results in a factor of 2^3 = 8 for all volume elements.

    Won't DF still be the line through the middle? (0,0) doesn't move, does it?

    Typo. EF. Is your entire problem statement in the first post? Seems like it ends rather abruptly.

    The image below shows two dilated figures with lines UV and WX drawn. If the larger figure was dilated using a scale factor of 4, what relationship do lines UV and WX have?

    @tkhunny this is the question i copy and pasted the wrong one lol The image below shows two dilated figures with lines UV and WX drawn. If the larger figure was dilated using a scale factor of 4, what relationship do lines UV and WX have?

    Have to see the figures. If UV and WX are corresponding linear parts of the two figures, then we have an obvious factor of 4.

    Mostly, it means I have to see the figures.
