6-27.

On grid paper, draw any quadrilateral. Then enlarge it by each of the following ratios.

1. $\frac { 4 } { 1 }$

 $4$ inches $4$ inches $\$$\$square$\$
You successfully enlarged the quadrilateral by $4:1$, since each side became four times as long.
1. $\frac { 7 } { 2 }$
For this problem, if the length of one side is $2$ units, then its enlarged version is $7$ units. If its length is $4$ units, the enlarged version is $14$ units. Use this information to help you enlarge a quadrilateral.
