**Exercises 5β6**

- Recall what you learned about parallel lines cut by a transversal, specifically about the angles that are formed.
- A dilation from center π by scale factor π maps β π΅π΄πΆ to β π΅β²π΄β²πΆβ². Show that πβ π΅π΄πΆ = πβ π΅β²π΄β²πΆβ².

**Discussion**

The dilation theorem for angles is as follows:

**DILATION THEOREM**: A dilation from center π and scale factor π maps an angle to an angle of equal measure.
We have shown this when the angle and its image intersect at a single point, and that point of intersection is not the
vertex of the angle.

Lesson Summary

- Dilations map angles to angles of equal measure.
- Dilations map polygonal figures to polygonal figures whose angles are equal in measure to the corresponding angles of the original figure and whose side lengths are equal to the corresponding side lengths multiplied by the scale factor.
