  • Ba kite with vertices ( 0 , 0 ) , ( 1 , 3 ) , ( 3 , 1 ) , and ( 3 , 3 )
  • Ca square with vertices ( 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , 1 ) , ( 1 , 0 ) , and ( 1 , 1 )
  • Da square with vertices ( 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , 3 ) , ( 3 , 0 ) , and ( 3 , 3 )
  • Ea square with vertices ( 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , 1 ) , ( 1 , 0 ) , and ( 3 , 3 )

What geometric transformation does this matrix represent?

  • Aa dilation with scale factor 3 and centre the origin
