1. A figure has the ordered pairs: A(2,0); B(7,2); C(3,4). Construct the new figure dilated by a scale factor of 2.

2. In the city of Vegas, they have a replica of the sphinx that is originally 240 feet tall. They used a scale factor of 1/3 to create the new statue. How tall is the sphinx in Vegas?

Thank You....

Although I can't help with first problem, the second is solved by multiplying 240 by 1/3 or dividing it by 3.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
