If a stamps width is 1.44 in. And length is.84 in. My scale factor is 1/5. How do I find the actual size?

Multiply the length and width of the stamp as you would for any rectangle first. Then multiply it by the scale factor which in this case is 1/5 or .2. This will give you the total area of the stamp.
