Of course haha

This question is very open-ended so there is no one correct answer So do you want to make a bigger triangle or a smaller triangle? (Making a bigger triangle is probably easier)

AZ:

Sounds good! So you need to know what when we make the triangle bigger, then it's an enlargement. And we do this by multiply each side by the same number (that is greater than 1) If we make it smaller, then it's a reduction and you're dividing each side by the same number.

We can definitely make the triangle two times as large so all you have to do is multiply each side by 2 so what is 4 * 2 = 4 * 2 = 6 * 2 =

Katrin369:

4 * 2 = 8 4 * 2 =8 6 * 2 =12

(I know you just deleted your reply so we can also change the numbers if you want to)

AZ:

So those numbers you came up with would be the new sides of the triangle if we enlarged it with a SCALE FACTOR of 2

Katrin369:

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @AZ (I know you just deleted your reply so we can also change the numbers if you want to) \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) No, no it's okay.

AZ:

so draw a bigger triangle that has a similar shape to the old one but just bigger

Katrin369:

Ok, thanks.
