To reduce or enlarge a figure according to a scale factor is a dilation.

Distance Formula

The distance between two points (x_1, y_1) and (x_2, y_2) can be defined as d= \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2}.


Mapping is a procedure involving the plotting of points on a coordinate grid to see the behavior of a function.

Scale Factor

A scale factor is a ratio of the scale to the original or actual dimension written in simplest form.
