You are making a poster to support your friend for homecoming. Your original photo is 4 inches by 6 inches. You want the photo on the poster to be 2 feet by 3 feet. What is the scale factor of this dilation?

Look at the values for each side of the rectangle and divide them to see the scale. In terms of length, you have a change from 4 to 2. In terms of breadth, you have a change from 6 to 3. In both cases, there has been a division by 2. Hence, the factor is 1/2.
