    Answer:1.2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    Original length of square is 6

    Also scaled copy has side length of 5

    So using unitary method to find the correct scaling

    6 unit of square is equivalent to 5 units of scaled copy

    Thus 1 unit of copy is equivalent to 1.2 units of square length

    So in final answer we need to multiply by a factor of 1.2 to get the original square length dimensions.
