I saw that you didnt want to see another post if we didnt try working it out first. But I need help understanding what the problem is asking, I don't know what it means when it says "dialated using a scale factor of 4."

**MathMate**, Friday, December 28, 2012 at 4:44pmDilation means expansion.

If it is not mentioned about which point dilation occurs, it is about (0,0).

In such a case (also the present case), dilation by a factor of k means multiply all x and y coordinates by k.

For example, a point originally at (2,1) will be at (4,2) after a dilation with a factor of 2.
