**Answer:**

**Option 3rd is correct**

4: 3

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**Perimeter(P) of rectangle is given by:**

**where, l is the length and w is the width of the rectangle respectively.**

Given that:

The dimensions of a smaller rectangle are 3 ft. by 9 ft.

Perimeter of smaller rectangle= 2(3+9) =2(12) = 24 ft.

**It is also given that: The dimensions of a larger rectangle are 5 ft. by 11 ft.**

Perimeter of Larger rectangle = 2(5+11) =2(16) = 32 ft.

**We have to find the ratio of the perimeter of the larger rectangle to the perimeter of the smaller rectangle.**

Substitute the given values we have;’

**Therefore, the ratio of the perimeter of the larger rectangle to the perimeter of the smaller rectangle is, 4 : 3**
