    The perimeter of small sign is: 36 inches

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The ratios will be used to solve the question

    Given

    Ratio of larger to smaller sign = 5:3

    Perimeter larger sign = 60 inches

    If there is a scale factor between the signs, there will be a scale factor between perimeters of both signs

    Let x be the perimeter of smaller sign

    So,

    5:3 = 60:x\\\frac{5}{3} = \frac{60}{x}\\5x = 180

    Dividing both sides by 5

    \frac{5x}{5} = \frac{180}{5}\\x = 36

    The perimeter of small sign is: 36 inches
