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)
