Let G be the center of equilateral triangle XYZ. A dilation centered at G with scale factor -4/3 is applied to triangle XYZ, to obtain triangle X'Y'Z'. Let A be the area of the region that is contained in both triangles XYZ and X'Y'Z' . Find A/xyz?

What is A/xyz I do not understand what I am being asked to find ???

The ratio of the areas is 9:16 but I really do not know if that is what you want......

I have already told you, the ratio of the areas is 9:16

From this you can work out the ratio that you are being asked for.

What is being asked for is still not written clearly, but you seem to understand what your teacher wants.

Hint the total area is 9+16, little,original area = 9 big dilated area =16
