The equation for finding a new point is

[ Old Point  - Dilation Center ] * Scale Factor +   Dilation Center

However....since the origin is the Dilation Center, this simplifies to

[Old Point] * Scale Factor....so we have

(12,12) * 14  =  (168,168)

(12,4) * 14 = (168, 56)

(8,0)*14  =   (112, 0)

(5,8) *14  = (70, 112)
