Triangle UVW is shown below with line AB passing through points A and B: Triangle UVW is shown with point A lying on side UV and point B lying on side UW. Line AB is perpendicular to side UW. If triangle UVW is dilated about the center of the triangle to create triangle U'V'W', what can you conclude about segments AB and A'B'?

Line A'B' contains point V. Segments A'B' and U'W' are parallel. Lines AB and A'B' are parallel. Lines AB and A'B' are perpendicular.

Wow, how do I get mentioned with such respected users? :o Let me try to graphically represent this problem so you can better understand it.

@dolphin1998 what was his/her guess?

"Triangle UVW is shown below" Yes, we need to see the triangle.

My guess is A, and how do I screenshot?

There should be a button that says "prt sc" on the top of your keyboard :) Press that, open paint, press ctrl+v (or apple+v) and save, then attach the file here.

Yeah, do you think you are able to help?

OpenStudy (malcolmmcswain):

Well, for one thing, you cannot conclude A. This is because we don't know the dilation factor of the transformation.

Does that help?

Where does it say AB is moved during the dilation?

I think it might be C or D, With his picture shown.

I mean, logically, that's the only possible answer.. but this question is very poorly written.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I agree. But what is the Answer, C?

1 year ago
OpenStudy (dangerousjesse):

I believe so. D could only be true if the triangle were rotated and dilated, A cannot be true based on what we've been told, and B cannot be true unless the triangle itself is rotated about any one vertex.
