**Stretch Dilation of a Graph**

A transformation in which all distances on the coordinate plane are lengthened by multiplying either all *x*-coordinates (horizontal dilation) or all *y*-coordinates (vertical dilation) by a common factor greater than 1.

Note: When the common factor is less than 1 the transformation is called a compression.
