Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x, y) = (kx, ky) (x, y) = (1, 2).... \[(0.5 \times 1,\space \space 0.5 \times 2) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember, if the dilation is greater than the positive integer 1, it will expand, if it is less than the positive integer 1, it will shrink. 0.5 < 1, therfore, you are shrinking the image.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I know that the coordinates of Q are 1,5 And because the dilation is less than one, the preimage is reduced rather than enlarged. So the answer would be .5, 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right. The one above was a test. I didn't want to give you it exactly, I'm glad you paid attention and realized I gave you the wrong coordinates. Good job. .5, 2.5 is right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also note, when writing (0.5, 2.5) you should remember this is not the original units, it's actually "q prime." We represent prime by putting a " ' " symbol after. So q = 'q, or, "que equals que prime."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They're not equal, they're congruent, but this is just an example. Take care.
