question
A has the coordinates (-4, 3) and B has the coordinates (4, 4). If DO,1/2(x, y) is a dilation of △ABC, what is true about the image △A'B'C'? Check all that apply.
answer
AB is parallel to A'B'. DO,1/2 (1/2x, 1/2y) = The distance from A' to the origin is half the distance from A to the origin.
