Calculate the scale factor of ABC to DEF. Enter answer as a whole number or as a fraction in lowest terms, using the slash mark ( / ) for the fraction bar.


Answer:

The scale factor applies to similar geometric figures, such as triangles.

The scale factor is the ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides.

In this case, the two triangles are congruent. All sides are equal.

Therefore, the scale factor = 1 for all sides.

For example: AB / DE = 1
