What is the start image called in enlargement?
What is the enlarged image called in enlargement?
How can we tell what the image is in enlargement?
It has dashes next to the letters of the points
How do we enlarge?
Square lengths by scale factor to enlarge
How can we work out the scale factor?
Divide one edge of image by same edge in object
What does enlargement not effect?
The size of angles
What does enlargement produce?
What is the rule for similar shapes?
In similar shapes angles are the same but length of lines have all changed
How do you enlarge an object using a point if enlargement?
Draw lines from the centre of enlargement to all points of the shape
What does enlarging by a negative scale factor do to the produced image?
The image produced when you enlarge a shape by a negative scale factor is a rotation of the enlarged object, 180* in the centre of enlargement
What does enlarging by a positive scale factor do to the produced image?
Enlarging by a positive scale factor makes the image grow bigger and further away from the centre of enlargement
What happens when the centre of enlargement is on the shape?
The image will overlap the object
When the scale factor is negative and the centre of enlargement is on the shape what happens to the image?
The shape rotates but one point remains attached to the object

How can you express the relationship between the lengths?
AB(with a hat)C' = AB(with a hat)C
In an enlargement, what is one word to describe the image and the object?
What two things happen in similar shapes?
The angles stay the same
The lengths increase in proportion
