# Dilations

## Determine whether a dilation is an enlargement, a reduction,

or a congruence transformation.
Determine the scale factor for a given dilation.

## Vincent Van Goghs Starry

Night reduced by a factor of 2

CLASSIFY DILATIONS
A dilation is a transformation that may change the size of a
figure.
A dilation requires a center point and a scale factor.

Key Concept

Dilation

## If |r| > 1, the dilation is an enlargement.

If 0 < |r| < 1, the dilation is a reduction.
If |r| = 1, the dilation is a congruence transformation.

Key Concept

Dilation

## We have seen that dilations produce similar figures,

therefore dilation is a similarity transformation.

Theorem
If a dilation with center C and a scale factor of r
transforms A to E and B to D, then ED = |r|(AB)

Example 1

Determine Measures
Under Dilations

## Find the measure of the dilation image AB or the preimage

AB using the given scale factor.
a. AB = 12, r = -2

b. AB = 36, r =

AB = |r|(AB)

AB = |r|(AB)

AB = 2(12)

36 = (AB)

AB = 24

AB = 144

## When the scale factor is negative, the image falls on

the opposite side of the center than the preimage.

Key Concept

Dilations

## If r > 0, P lies on CP, and CP = r CP

If r < 0, P lies on CP the ray opposite CP, and CP = r CP
The center of dilation is always its own image.

Theorem
If P(x, y) is the preimage of a dilation centered at the origin
with scale factor r, then the image is P(rx, ry).
