I need help with this question and a few others (later) please. thank you for your time

Find the scale factor of each if the polygons are proportional.

4. A = 4, 4, 5, 6 B = 1.2, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8

AProp, s.f. = 6:4

BProp, s.f. = 9:2

CProp, s.f. = 1:10

DProp, s.f. = 11:9

E Prop, s.f. = 10:3

F Prop, s.f. = 5:2

I divided 4 by 1.2 and got 3.3333 as for all of the other numbers.

so I'm guessing it would be 10:3 ?
