Is trapezoid ABDC the result of a dilation of trapezoid MNPQ by a scale factor of ? Why or why not? Yes, because AB and CD are each the lengths MN and QP. Yes, because sides AB and CD are parallel to sides MN and QP. No, because AB is the length MN but CD is the length QP. No, because sides AB and CD have different slopes from sides MN and QP.

Answer:No, because AB is 2/5 of the length of the nm, but the CD is 1/3 of the length of the QP. Step-by-step explanation:the Comparison of the corresponding sides, the length of AB is 4. The length of MN is 10. This makes your relationship 4/10 = 2/5.The length of CD is 2. The length of QS is 6. this makes your relationship 2/6 = 1/3.The proportions of the sides are not equal, so the figure is not proportional and, therefore, not a dilation.
