Use the Polygon tool to draw an image of the given polygon under a dilation with a scale factor of 14 and center of dilation (0, 0)(0, 0) .

cordinates are (12,12),(12,4),(8,0),(5,8)

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)
