Perimeter of ΔA'B'C' is 52 cm.

The perimeter of ΔABC is =13 cm

Length of OB = 5 cm

Length of OB' = 15 + 5 = 20 cm

The Dilation factor can be found out b

ΔOCB and ΔOC'B' are similar as BC|| B'C'

From triangles ΔOCB & ΔOC'B' the dilation factor can be found out

by the formula below

$$\frac{BC}{B'C'} =\frac{5}{20}$$

B'C'= 4BC

so the dilation factor = 4

hence the new perimeter of the triangle = 13 4 = 52 cm
