Parallelogram RSTU is shown below with a line AB drawn through its center. If the parallelogram is dilated using a scale factor of 3 and a line is drawn through the center of the new dilated figure, what relationship will that line have with line AB in the drawing below?

@AZ can you help @idontunderstand

Before we proceed, I want to know if this is a multiple choice question or a write your own response @idontunderstand

Alright so when we're dilating the parallelogram by a scale factor of 3 that basically means, we take each point of the parallelogram if the point is (x, y) the new point when we dilate it by 3 will be `(3x, 3y)` we just multiply the x-value by 3 and y-value by 3

So can you tell me the points of our parallelogram? We have 4 points. Point R, S, T and U What is the x and y coordinate of Point R? @idontunderstand

@iDoNtUnDeRsTaNd do you still need help?

@iDoNtUnDeRsTaNd we can't help you if you don't respond to the post or give any help yourself on the question.
