# Lesson 1

What are Scaled Copies?

Let’s explore scaled copies.

### Problem 1

Here is a figure that looks like the letter A, along with several other figures. Which figures are scaled copies of the original A? Explain how you know.

### Problem 2

Tyler says that Figure B is a scaled copy of Figure A because all of the peaks are half as tall.

Do you agree with Tyler? Explain your reasoning.

### Problem 3

Complete each equation with a number that makes it true.

1. $$5 \boldcdot \text{______} = 15$$
2. $$4 \boldcdot \text{______} = 32$$
3. $$6 \boldcdot \text{______} = 9$$
4. $$12 \boldcdot \text{______} = 3$$

### Problem 4

Here is a picture of the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA.
