### Transformations

Hi, I need help with this transformation lesson. I'll post 5 at a time.

1. An angle changes in size as it undergoes a dilation.
A False
B True

2. A line segment usually decreases in size under contraction.
A False
B True

3. There can only be one obtuse angle in a triangle.
A False
B True

4. If a figure is reflected across the x-axis it is congruent to the original figure.
A False
B True

5. A figure derived from a previous figure by rotation, translation or dilation will be congruent to the original figure.
A False
B True

I think there are things in my story that have helped my creativity. Your father being killed, for instance, is one of the best things that could happen to a kid if he's going to write poetry or songs.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
