of a dilation is the ratio of a side length of the image to the corresponding side length of the original figure.
You can describe a dilation with respect to the origin with the notation
, where k is the scale factor.
If 0 < k < 1, the dilation is a reduction.
If k>1, the dilation is an enlargement.
