8-32.

What scale factor value times 6 ft would result in 5 ft? Consider the variable equation with *x* as the scale factor:

6 • *x* = 5

After isolating *x*, what do you get as the scale factor?

If the scale factor to change from B to A is just the reverse to change the shape back to its original form,

what would it be? Create an expression like above if necessary.

The scale factors are reciprocals.
