# Common Core: 8th Grade Math : Describe the Effect of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, and Reflections: CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle doubles in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #2 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle triples in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #3 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle is half in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #4 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle doubles in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #5 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle triples in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #6 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle quadrupled in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #7 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle doubles in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #8 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle quadruples  in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #9 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?

Explanation:

A dilation creates an image of the same shape, but of a different size. Dilations are always done with a certain scale factor. Let's look at the image in the picture and determine the length and width of each of the rectangles:

Notice that both the length and the width of the rectangle is five times the size in the purple rectangle, from the blue rectangle; thus the scale of the dilation is

### Example Question #10 : Describe The Effect Of Dilations, Translations, Rotations, And Reflections: Ccss.Math.Content.8.G.A.3

What is the scale of the dilation that the blue rectangle underwent to get the purple rectangle in the image provided?
