To Draw Scaled Copies of a Figure.

  • Draw a scaled copy of Figure A and Figure B using a scale factor of 3.​
  • Draw a scaled copy of Figure C and Figure D using a scale factor of .​

To Draw More Scaled Copies of a Figure.

(A). Diego and Jada want to scale the polygon below 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.

(B). Andre wants to make a scaled copy of Jada’s drawing so the side that corresponds to 4 units in Jada’s polygon is 8 units in his scaled copy.

Andre says “I wonder if I should add 4 units to the lengths of all of the segments?” What would you say in response to Andre? Explain or show your reasoning. Create the scaled copy that Andre wants.

The side lengths of Triangle B are all 5 more than the side lengths of Triangle A. Can Triangle B be a scaled copy of Triangle A? Explain your reasoning.

To Draw More Scaled Copies of a Figure.

(1). 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.​

(4). Draw a scaled copy of Polygon C below using a scale factor of 3/2.
