  1. The dilation constant K with origin (0,0) can be determined by
    x'/x or y'/y
    where (x,y) is the original position, and (x',y') is the image (dilated position).

    In this case, since both y' and y are zero, only k=x'/x applies.

    Do the ratios have to have the same scale factor to be a dilation? My friend says yes, or else the scale factor would be useless. I on the other hand say no because it's still a dilation as it's an reduction. Here's the
