We did a lot of practice on scale factoring and it can be very important to most of the problems we had to work with. Scale factoring is what you use to enlarge or decrease the measurements of the rectangles, or whatever you are working with. Scale factoring is used to show the way it is stretched.
- with this example I have the sides written as 2 and 4.
- 2 x 2= 4 and 4 x2 =8
- When using a scale factor of 2 you are stretching the sides. Therefor it would now become 4 and 8.
- This example using bigger numbers of 4, 8, 9. With the scale factor of 3.
- You do the same thing and make it three times bigger. 4 x 3 =12, 8 x 3= 24, and 9 x 3= 27. Therefor, I now have sides of 12, 24 and 27.
