Homework Help: Geometry - Dilation of a square

Posted by Knights on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 10:54am.

The preimage of square ABCD has its center at (8,-8) and has an area of 4 square units. The top side of the square is horizontal. The square is then dilated with the dilation center at (0,0) and a scale factor of 2. What are the coordinates of the vertex of the image of square ABCD that is farthest from the origin? Give your answer as an ordered pair.

I don't fully understand this problem. How does it get dilated at the origin when the square ABC had center at (8,-8)?
