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.
