# Geometry (Please check my work)

A segment has endpoints M(6,15) and N(-3,9). The image of the segmen for a dilation with center (0,0), has endpoints M'(2,5)and N (-1,3). What is the scale factor of dilation?

A. 2<<<<
B. 3
C. 1/2
D. 1/3

I'm not confident with this answer because I still don't really understand dilation..

2. M->M', so the scale is 2/6, not 6/2
