# A line segment has endpoints at #(9 ,2 )# and #(7 , 4)#. The line segment is dilated by a factor of #3 # around #(1 , 5)#. What are the new endpoints and length of the line segment?

##### 1 Answer

New length

#### Explanation:

There is indeed a Bolivia, United States, in North Carolina, not too far from Myrtle Beach.

I did the general case of this question [here].(https://socratic.org/questions/a-line-segment-has-endpoints-at-2-4-and-5-3-the-line-segment-is-dilated-by-a-fac-1)

I got for endpoints

new length

These are old problems that probably no one ever looks at that I think are just here to give the noobs something to do. I'm an old timer at 26 days; I only answered because of Bolivia, United States.

I will now mindlessly substitute.

new length
