### A transformation that proportionally reduces or enlarges a figure?

Scaling will proportionally reduce or enlarge a figure. The
amount of scaling is given by the scale factor (greater than
zero)
If the scale factor is less than 1, the figure is reduced and it
is sometimes called a contraction
If the scale factor is greater than 1, the figure is enlarged,
and it is called a dilation or enlargement.
If a centre of enlargement is used, the distance of every point
from the centre is multiplied by the scale factor. The scale factor
can be negative in which case the distance to the new point is
measured on the opposite side of the centre to the original
point.
