Making Scaled Copies

Making Scaled Copies 1.

  • Draw a scaled copy of either Figure A or Figure B using a scale factor of 3.​
  • On the same graph, draw a scaled copy of either Figure A or Figure B using a scale factor of 1/2.​

Diego and Jada want to scale this polygon so the side that corresponds to 15 units in the original is 5 units in the scaled copy. They each use a different operation to find the new side lengths. Their finished drawings are found below.

Quadrilateral A has side lengths 6, 9, 9, and 12. Quadrilateral B is a scaled copy of Quadrilateral A, with its shortest side of length 2.

  • If it is helpful, use the coordinate grid below to draw the two figures.​

Here below is a polygon on a grid. Draw a scaled copy of the polygon that has a perimeter of 30 units.

Priya and Tyler are discussing the figures shown below. Priya thinks that B, C, and D are scaled copies of A. Tyler says B and D are scaled copies of A.
