Myles was asked to draw a triangle xyz and then dilate it using the origin aa the center of dilation and a scale factor of 0.75.he thinks adding 0.75 units to the coordinates of the vertices of xyz will help him draw the dilated image. Explain why miles is incorrect,and what he needs to do to graph the dilation.

it's a dilation, not a translation.
for a dilation, each coordinate is multiplied by the scale factor.
