# Similarity and Transformation

### By Kristen Diggs

Transformation is a operation that maps a geometric figure, preimage, onto a new figure, image. The definition of similarity is one image can be obtained from another sequence of transformations and dilations. To find out the transformations are similar you set up ratios for the original shapes and the transformed shape. The numerator is the units one point is from another . The denominator is also the same. Then you make another ratios and follow the same steps. Finally you simpflify if needed and if they are the same, they are the similair.
