Rachel wants to enlarge her company logo for a sign. Sketch an enlargement of the Roofs by Rachel logo. Use your protractor to make sure the angle measurements of your enlargement stay the same as the original.
How are the two images alike? How are they different? Describe your findings.

Answer

Explanation:
Enlargement scale factor (ESF) = $$\frac{Big}{Small}$$
let K is the enlargement factor
K = $$\frac{Big}{Small}$$
Big = K x small
The size of the Rachel company logo after an enlargement of the Roofs by Rachel logo is same as the original.

Many computers and phones use reductions, called thumbnails, to represent images. Reductions are transformations that keep the proportions of the original image but are smaller in size.

1. A. Triangle ABC is a drawing of the side of a roof. Use a ruler and a protractor to measure âˆ†ABC.
âˆ A measures ____ Â°
âˆ B measures ____ Â°
âˆ C measures ____ Â°

$$\overline{A B}$$ measures _____ inch(es).
$$\overline{B C}$$ measures _____ inch(es).
$$\overline{A C}$$ measures _____ inch(es).
Answer:
âˆ A measures 100Â°
âˆ B measures 30Â°
âˆ C measures 50Â°
$$\overline{A B}$$ measures 3 inch(es).
$$\overline{B C}$$ measures 4 inch(es).
$$\overline{A C}$$ measures 2 inch(es).

Explanation:
By using protractor all the angles are measured, recorded measurements are as shown in the above.

B. If âˆ†A’B’C’ is a reduction of âˆ†ABC that results in âˆ†A’B’C’ having a perimeter exactly half that of âˆ†ABC, what are the measurements of âˆ†A’B’C’?
âˆ A’ measures ____Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} B^{\prime}}$$ measures ____ inches
âˆ B’ measures ____Â° $$\overline{B^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures ____ inches
âˆ C’ measures ____Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures ____ inches
Answer:
âˆ A’ measures 100Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} B^{\prime}}$$ measures 1.5 inches.
âˆ B’ measures 30Â° $$\overline{B^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 2 inches.
âˆ C’ measures 50Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 1 inches.

Explanation:
âˆ†A’B’C’ having a perimeter exactly half that of âˆ†ABC
every side of the triangle is reduced to half, then the perimeter is also will be half
âˆ†ABC’ perimeter is
AB + BC + AC = 3 + 4 + 2 = 9 inches
âˆ†A’B’C’ having a perimeter is
A’B’ + B’C’ + A’C’ = 1.5 + 2 + 1 = 4.5 inches
4.5 exactly half that of âˆ†ABC
Reduction scale factor (RSF) = $$\frac{small}{big}$$
half = $$\frac{small}{big}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’B’}{AB}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{B’C’}{BC}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’C’}{AC}$$
fine the new image triangle values
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’B’}{3}$$
A’B’ = $$\frac{1 X 3}{2}$$ = 1.5 inches
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{B’C’}{4}$$
B’C’ = $$\frac{1 X 4}{2}$$ = 2 inches
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’C’}{2}$$
A’C’ = $$\frac{1 X 2}{2}$$ = 1 inch
âˆ A’ measures 100Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} B^{\prime}}$$ measures 1.5 inches
âˆ B’ measures 30Â° $$\overline{B^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 2 inches
âˆ C’ measures 50Â° $$\overline{A^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 1 inches

C. Draw âˆ†A’B’C’ as a reduction. Find the new image triangle values?
Answer:

Explanation:
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’B’}{3}$$
A’B’ = $$\frac{1 X 3}{2}$$ = 1.5 inches
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{B’C’}{4}$$
B’C’ = $$\frac{1 X 4}{2}$$ = 2 inches
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’C’}{2}$$
A’C’ = $$\frac{1 X 2}{2}$$ = 1 inch
âˆ A’ measures 100Â°, $$\overline{A^{\prime} B^{\prime}}$$ measures 1.5 inches
âˆ B’ measures 30Â°, $$\overline{B^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 2 inches
âˆ C’ measures 50Â°, $$\overline{A^{\prime} C^{\prime}}$$ measures 1 inches

D. Explain how you know it is a reduction.
Answer:
When Scale Factor is between 0 and 1, the new shape is a reduction (smaller).
Or less than 100%. When Scale Factor is above 1, new shape is an enlargement (bigger).
The size of an enlargement/reduction is described by its scale factor.

Explanation:
Reduction scale factor (RSF) = $$\frac{small}{big}$$
half = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{small}{big}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’B’}{AB}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{B’C’}{BC}$$
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{A’C’}{AC}$$

Turn and Talk What would happen if you enlarged âˆ†A’B’C’? Could you make a new image that is congruent to the original figure âˆ†ABC? If so, how?
Answer:
Yes,

Explanation:
The enlarged âˆ†A’B’C’, a new image that is congruent to the original figure âˆ†ABC.
if the enlargement factor is twice or 2, then original i mage will be formed.
Enlargement scale factor (ESF) = $$\frac{big}{small}$$
2 = $$\frac{big}{small}$$
big = 2 x small

Look at this photo. As the train tracks get closer to the front, they appear larger. A coordinate grid can help show how the tracks’ apparent size changes.

2. Samuel wants to draw a railroad tunnel on a grid. First he draws the far end of the tunnel in blue as shown, then he decides to use rays to help him accurately enlarge the image.
A. Samuel draws two rays. Each starts at the origin and passes through a vertex of the blue preimage. He uses the rays to help sketch the floor of the tunnel closest to the viewer.

How do the rays help him draw the floor of the tunnel closest to the viewer?
Answer:
Two rays helps to enlarge the floor of the tunnel closest to the viewer.
Explanation:
From the center the rays are extended to all vertices,
the original figure scale factor is multiplied by 2.
The resultant figure is double the original picture.

B. Draw additional rays from the origin through the vertices of Samuel’s preimage. Use those rays to complete the enlarged image.
Answer:

Explanation:
From the center the rays are extended to all vertices,
the original figure scale factor is multiplied by 2.
The resultant figure is double the original picture.

C. Look at your new image. Is it the same shape as the preimage? Explain how you know.

______________________
Answer:
Yes,
Explanation:
A transformation is a change in the position, size, or shape of a new geometric figure.
The preimage of a transformation is the shape before the transformation
The new figure is called the image and original figure is known as preimage.
First image rays which are drawn are extended and points marked on the chart as shown in the above figure.

3. You can make reductions on a coordinate grid.

A. Draw rays from the origin through the vertices of the given shape. How can these rays help you reduce the shape?
______________________
______________________
Answer:

Explanation:
When Scale Factor is between 0 and 1, the new shape is a reduction (smaller).
Or less than 100%. When Scale Factor is above 1, new shape is an enlargement (bigger).
The size of an enlargement/reduction is described by its scale factor.
Original image or figure is reduced to half by extending the rays as shown in the above figure.

B. Reduce the shape so the sides are half the original lengths. Use the grid to sketch your new image.
Answer:
Yes,
Explanation:
The grid method is an effective way to transfer or enlarge the original image onto canvas,
ensuring correct proportions.

C. How can you be sure your image shows an accurate reduction?

In the cartesian plane is defined as a two-dimensional coordinate plane,
which is formed by the intersection of the x-axis and y-axis.
The x-axis and y-axis intersect perpendicular to each other at the point called the origin.

Question 3.
A certain Figure Q is enlarged to form Figure P. Are Figures Q and P congruent? Why or why not?
Answer:
YES,
Explanation:
In geometry, two figures or objects are congruent if they have the same shape and size,
or if one has the same shape and size as the mirror image of the other.
If a Figure Q is enlarged to form Figure P.
Figure P and Q are congruent due to the angles are equal.
Figure P and Q sides may be differ by its lengths.

Rotate âˆ†ABC 90Â° counterclockwise about the origin.

Answer:
90 Degree counter clockwise rotation.

Explanation:
When rotating a point 90 degrees counterclockwise about the originÂ our point A(x,y) becomes A'(-y,x).
In other words, switch x and y and make y negative
A(1, 4) —>Â  A'(-4, 1)
B(4, 2) —>Â  B'(-2, 4)
C(1, 1) —>Â  C'(-1, 1)

Answer:
Reflection
Explanation:
Consider cutting out a pre image, lifting it, and repositioning it face down.
That’s called a reflection or a flip.
A reflection image is a reflection of the pre image.
