PSA6QB2 - Practice Problems---7.1 Lesson 6: Scaling and Area (7.G.A.1, 7.G.B.6)
Part A)

On the grid, draw a scaled copy of Polygon Q using a scale factor of 2.

Draw your scaled copy on paper, take a picture, and upload it using the image upload icon

If you do not have the ability to upload an image of your work type "Scaled copy is on paper."

Part B)

Compare the perimeter and area of the new polygon to those of Q.

Part A)

A right triangle has an area of 36 square units.

If you draw scaled copies of this triangle using the scale factors in the table, what will the areas of these scaled copies be?

What is the area when the scale factor is 2?

Type your answer below as a number (example: 5, 3.1, 4 1/2, or 3/2):
Part B)

What is the area when the scale factor is 3?

Type your answer below as a number (example: 5, 3.1, 4 1/2, or 3/2):
Part C)

What is the area when the scale factor is 5?

Type your answer below as a number (example: 5, 3.1, 4 1/2, or 3/2):
Part D)

What is the area when the scale factor is 1/2?

Type your answer below as a number (example: 5, 3.1, 4 1/2, or 3/2):
Part E)

What is the area when the scale factor is 2/3?

Part F)

Explain or show your reasoning on how you solved.

Part A)

Diego drew a scaled version of a Polygon P and labeled it Q.

If the area of Polygon P is 72 square units, what scale factor did Diego use to go from P to Q?
