If the triangle below is dilated by a factor of 3/2 , what are the vertices of the transformed triangle?

(-3, 0), (6, 3), (6, -3)

(-2, 0) (4, 3), (6, -3)

(-3, 0), (6, 3), (9, -3)

(-3, -3), (4, 2), (9, -3)

This is a dilation set about (0,0)

(-3, 0), (6, 3), (9, -3)

 

Both coordinate values of every point are "expanded" by 3/2

 

So.......

 

(3/2) * (-2, 0)  = (-3, 0)

(3/2) * (4. 2)  =  (6, 3)

(3/2) * (6, -2) = (9, -3)
