Answer:Center of dilation → (0, 0)Step-by-step explanation:Vertices of a triangle ABC are A(3, 6), B(7, 6) and C(7, 3).

If this triangle is dilated by a scale factor of ‘k’ about the origin,

Rule for the dilation is,

(x, y) → (kx, ky)

If vertex A is dilated by a scale factor of 3 about the origin,

A(3, 6) → A'(3×3, 3×6)

→ A'(9, 18)

Therefore,

center of dilation is origin (0, 0).
