**Answer:**

1. The scale factor is 2.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

5 ÷ 2.5 = 2

3 ÷ 1.5 = 2

**Answer:**

2. The area of the scale drawing is 3.75 in^2.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

1.5 × 2.5 = 3.75

**Answer:**

3. The area of the actual drawing is 7.5 in^2.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

3.75 × 2 = 7.5

**Step-by-step explanation:**

A Dilation is defined as a transformation in which the image and the pre-image have the same shape, but their sizes are different.

When the scale factor is greater than 1, the image obtained after the dilation is greater than the pre-image and it is an "Enlargement".

When the scale factor is is between 0 and 1, the image obtained after the dilation is smaller than the pre-image and it is an "Reduction".

In this case you know that the triangle ABC was dilated by this scale factor:

With the origin as the center of dilation.

Since:

It is a Reduction.

You can identify that the vertices of the triangle ABC are:

So you need to multiply the coordinates of each vertex of the triangle ABC by , in order to get the coordinates of the triangle A'B'C. Then, you get:
