Given , use point M as the center of dilation to locate the vertices of a triangle that has side lengths that are three times longer than the sides of . Use what you learned about dilating figures, center of dilation scale factor to dilate the figure without the geogebra dilation tool. Note: You may need to zoom out to see the figure after dilation. (Hint: draw a line from the center of dilation through each vertex of the triangle. Measure the length from the center of dilation to the vertex and create a line segment, along the same line, three times longer.)
Now repeat the process of applet 1 to create a dilation of centered at point N by a factor of .
