Please see attached for the graphs to go along with each problem.

Solution:
Given points are K(-4,4), L(4,4), M(4,-4) and N(-4,-4)
A dilation of scalar factor k whose center of dilation is the origin may be written:
Dk (x, y) = (kx, ky).
After dilation, points will be K'(-8,-8), L'(8,8), M'(8,-8) and N'(-8,-8).
K(-4,4)-> K'(-8,-8)
L(4,4)-> L'(8,8)
M(4,-4)-> M'(8,-8)
N(-4,-4)-> N'(-8,-8).

Solution:
Given points are P(0,-4), Q(8,-4), R(8,-8) and S(0,-8).
A dilation of scalar factor k ...
