The length of JK¯¯¯¯¯ is 12 units.

What is the length of the image of the line segment after a dilation with a scale factor of 2/5?

Assuming you mean 25%, the answer will be 25/100 * 12, which is 3.

Thanks, superman...!!!

 

But...if the scale factor is truly 25....the image is now 25 * 12 =  300 units long.

(2/5) *12  =   24 / 5  =   4 + 4/5  =   4.8
