# Draw a quadrilateral of any measurements. Construct a dilation of scale factor 3. Measure their corresponding sides and verify whether they are similar.

Answer :

Given, Dilation of scale factor = 3

Let’s draw a square with each side = 3 cm

Now on dilating the square using scale factor = 3, then

Each side of the square becomes = cm

We know that two figures are similar if their angles are same.

In the two squares drawn above we know that each angle = 90

Hence, both the figures are similar.

If the distance between pillar and building is 10 m, estimate the height of the building. [Here height of Sudha is neglected]NEXTCut the bold type English alphabets (capital) and paste in your note book.
