# Dilations

1. Plot the following vertices on the coordinate grid: A(2 , -3) B(3, 5) C(-1,4). Connect point A to point B, point B to point C and point C to point A. Color this triangle RED.
2. Dilate the original figure by a scale factor of 2. Label it triangle DEF. Color this triangle BLUE.
3. Dilate the original figure by a scale factor of .25. Label it triangle GHI. Color this triangle GREEN.
4. Develop a ratio to represent the relationship of each corresponding side for triangles ABC, DEF, and GHI.
5. What can you conclude about these triangles (be specific).
