### Problem 4

A polygon with area 10 square units is dilated by a scale factor of \(k\). Find the area of the image for each value of \(k\).

- \(k=4\)
- \(k=1.5\)
- \(k=1\)
- \(k=\frac13\)

### Solution

### Problem 5

Parallelogram \(AB’C’D'\) was obtained by dilating parallelogram \(ABCD\) using \(A\) as the center of dilation.

- What was the scale factor of the dilation?
- How many congruent copies of \(ABCD\) have we fit inside \(AB’C’D'\)?
- How does the area of parallelogram \(AB'C'D'\) compare to parallelogram \(ABCD\)?
- If parallelogram \(ABCD\) has area 12 square units, what is the area of parallelogram \(AB'C'D'\)?

### Solution

### Problem 6

Select **all** solids whose cross sections are dilations of some two-dimensional shape using a point directly above the shape as a center and scale factors ranging from 0 to 1.

### Solution

### Problem 7

Select **all** expressions which give the measure of angle \(A\).

\(\arccos\left(\frac{28}{53}\right)\)

\(\arccos\left(\frac{45}{53}\right)\)

\(\arcsin\left(\frac{28}{53}\right)\)

\(\arcsin\left(\frac{45}{53}\right)\)

\(\arctan\left(\frac{28}{45}\right)\)

\(\arctan\left(\frac{45}{28}\right)\)
