Scale Factor of 0.25
Here we will explain what a Scale Factor of 0.25 means and provide you with a Scale Factor of 0.25 Calculator so you calculate either the beginning number (n) or the end number (n prime).
First things first. If you have a "number n" (n), a "number n prime" (n′) and a Scale Factor of 0.25, then it means the following:
n × scale factor = n prime
n × 0.25 = n′
In other words per the equation above, a Scale Factor of 0.25 is the factor that you would multiply with n to get n′.
A scale factor between 0 and 1 will decrease the number and is called a Reduction Scale Factor. A scale factor greater than 1 will increase the number and is called an Enlargement Scale Factor. A scale factor of 1 will not change the number and is called a Congruent Scale Factor.
A Scale Factor of 0.25 is therefore a Reduction Scale Factor.
Below is our useful Scale Factor of 0.25 Calculator where you can either enter n or n′ and we will then calculate the corresponding number.
As we explained above, n prime is calculated by multiplying n by 0.25. This means that when our calculator calculates n, it divides n prime by 0.25. Note also that our answers are rounded to the nearest hundredth if necessary.
