How do you write a proportion to prove the graphs are similar?

What I've done so far
Written various fractions and tried to make them equal to proportions, but I didn't get it.

We normally talk about geometric shapes being "similar" (that is, exactly the same shape, but a different size) in which case we can express this as a proportion (like 1:3 means one of the shapes is 1/3 the size of the other).

But as for "similar graphs", I'll need to know more to help you.
