What is the scale factor from B to A?

What is the relationship of the scale factors?

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 change from B to A is just the reverse of the change from A to B, what would the scale factor be? Create an expression like above if necessary.

The scale factors are reciprocals.
