HELP!! MEDAL + FAN Square RSTU is constructed with line PQ drawn through its center. If the square is dilated using a scale factor of one over two and a line is drawn through the center of the new dilated figure, what relationship will the new line have with line PQ? Explain your reasoning using complete sentences.

    if it was dilated with a sf of 1/2, this is how it would look |dw:1441468529062:dw|

    it stays the same because the center of both squares are the same

    Make it longer like this when the square is dilated with a scale factor of 1/2, the square became smaller. However, the center of both squares stayed the same so line PQ and the new line are the same
