Dilation of a Graph
A transformation in which all distances
on the coordinate plane are lengthened by multiplying either all
xcoordinates (horizontal
dilation) or all ycoordinates (vertical
dilation) by a common factor greater than 1.
Note:
When the common factor is less than 1 the transformation is called
a compression.
