## What is dilation?

Dilation is a type of transformational geometry that changes the size of an object. The dilation rule is used to find the new coordinates of a point after the object has been dilated. In this case, the dilation rule is dt13 x y where the center of dilation is t3 2.

### What is the rule for dilation?

Dilation is a linear transformation that changes the size of an object. The rule for dilation is dt13 x y where the center of dilation is t3 2. This means that the object is dilated by a factor of 3 in the x-direction and 2 in the y-direction.

### What is the center of dilation?

The center of dilation is the point about which a figures is being dilated. The image below shows an example of dilation with the center of dilation indicated by the red dot. In this example, the center of dilation is t3 2.

## How to dilate a figure?

To dilate a figure, you multiply the coordinates of the vertices of the pre-image by the scale factor. For example, if you were dilating a figure with a scale factor of 2, you would multiply each coordinate by 2. So, if a vertex had the coordinates (2, 3), it would become (4, 6).

### What is the dilation factor?

To dilate a figure means to change its size. When you dilate a figure, the dilation factor is the number that you multiply the original dimensions by. So, if the dilation factor is 2, then the new dimensions are twice the original dimensions. If the dilation factor is 3, then the new dimensions are three times the original dimensions, and so on.

### How do you find the dilation of a figure?

To dilate a figure, you multiply the coordinates of each point by a scale factor. The resulting image is an enlarged or reduced copy of the original figure.

For example, to dilate a figure with a scale factor of 2, you multiply the coordinates of each point by 2. So if the original figure had coordinates (4, 3), the coordinates of the dilated figure would be (8, 6).

Similarly, to dilate a figure with a scale factor of 1/2, you divide the coordinates of each point by 2. So if the original figure had coordinates (4, 3), then the coordinates of the dilated figure would be (2, 1.5).

## What are the properties of dilation?

Dilation is a transformation that changes the size of an object. It can make an object larger or smaller. The amount of change is determined by the scale factor. The center of dilation is a fixed point in the plane that is not transformed.

### What is the image of a dilation?

To dilate a figure is to enlarge or reduce it by a given factor. The given factor is called the scale factor and it is usually represented by the letter k. To dilate a figure with a scale factor of k, we multiply each measure of the figure by k. This has the effect of either stretching or compressing the figure.

A dilation with a scale factor greater than 1 will result in an image that is larger than the original. A dilation with a scale factor between 0 and 1 will result in an image that is smaller than the original.

The image of a dilation can be found by multiplying each coordinate of the figure by the scale factor. For example, if we dilate a figure with a scale factor of 2, we would multiply each coordinate by 2 to find the coordinates of the image.

### What is the inverse of a dilation?

The inverse of a dilation is a contraction. A contraction is when an object is made smaller. The symbol for contraction is “-“. The amount that an object contracts by is the scale factor. To find the scale factor, divide the new length by the old length.

### What is the composition of dilations?

Dilations are a type of transformation that changes the size, but not the shape, of an object. In a dilation, each point of the object moves away from or toward a fixed point, called the center of dilation. The amount of enlargement or reduction depends on the scale factor. The scale factor is always written as a positive number greater than zero. It is sometimes referred to as the “stretch” factor. To dilate an object by a certain scale factor, we multiply each coordinate of every point by that scale factor.
