When a dilation occurs to a figure about the origin the scale factor, k, has the following effect to the coordinates of that figure.

\((x,y)\Rightarrow(kx,ky)\)

The scale factor in this case is 2. We can use this to calculate the coordinates of the resulting image.

\(A(-4,-1)\Rightarrow A'(-8,-2)\\ B(-4,-3)\Rightarrow B'(-8,-6)\\ C(-1,-3)\Rightarrow C'(-2,-6)\)

Here is the drawing with the preimage and image labeled. The dotted lines are not necessary, but they show the effect of the dilation.
