# What type of dilation occurs with a scale factor of 14?

The type of dilation that occurs with a scale factor of 14 is enlargement. Any time the scale factor is larger than 1, it is enlargement.

### What is a dilation in geometry?

A dilation is a type of transformation that changes the size of the image. The scale factor, sometimes called the scalar factor, measures how much larger or smaller the image is. Below is a picture of a dilation with a scale factor of 2. This means that the image, A', is twice as large as the pre-image A. Like other transformations, prime notation is used to distinguish the image fromthe pre-image. The image always has…
