# Dilate Triangles On A Coordinate Grid Worksheet

## 8 problems   In 8th Grade, students learn about dilation and how to plot the point on a coordinate plane after the dilation. Some student face difficulties while dilating the triangle on a coordinate grid. Teachers can provide “Dilate triangles on a coordinate grid worksheet” to their students. This worksheet can help them to overcome difficulties. In this worksheet, each question has a triangle on a coordinate grid and a scale factor of dilation, students are asked to plot the triangle after dilation.

To solve these problems, students need to identify the coordinates of the vertices of the given triangle. The center of dilation is the origin, which means to find the new coordinates of the triangle students have to multiply the coordinate of the original triangle by the scale factor. For example, if the three vertices of a triangle are (2,1),(2,5) and (3,4) and the scale factor is 2 with the origin as the center of dilation then the vertices of the triangle after dilation are (4,2), (4,10) and (6,8).
