Definition: Two rectangles are similar if their sides are in the same ratio.
You need to convert the units:
1 foot = 12 inches
dimensions of poster:
5 feet long = 5*12 = 60 inches
3.5 feet wide = 3.5 * 12 = 42 inches
Ratio of the poster: 60/42 = 30/21
Ratio of the painting: 30/21
They have the same ratio, so the poster is similar to the original painting.
