### Problem 5

Find a sequence of rigid transformations and dilations that takes square $$ABCD$$ to square $$EFGH$$.

A:

Translate by the directed line segment $$AE$$, which will take $$B$$ to a point $$B’$$. Then rotate with center $$E$$ by angle $$B’EF$$. Finally, dilate with center $$E$$ by scale factor $$\frac{5}{2}$$.

B:

Translate by the directed line segment $$AE$$, which will take $$B$$ to a point $$B’$$. Then rotate with center $$E$$ by angle $$B’EF$$. Finally, dilate with center $$E$$ by scale factor $$\frac{2}{5}$$.

C:

Dilate using center $$E$$ by scale factor $$\frac25$$.

D:

Dilate using center $$E$$ by scale factor $$\frac52$$.
