Question chocolate sauce recipe

A basic chocolate sauce is made using the ratio:
7 parts chocolate
4 parts heavy cream
2 parts butter
if you make a chocolate sauce using the 22.75 oz of chocolate that you have on hand, how many oz of the other 2 ingredients should you use with it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I divided 22.75 by 7 which gave me 3.25

I then took 3.25 x4 and got 13 oz cream

then 3.25 x 2 and got 6.5 oz for cream.

Is this correct?

It would help to know how many ounces are in the heavy cream and butter.

??? That was what the problem was asking and Tongass answered correctly (except for the obvious typo of "cream" for "butter" in the second part)- 13 oz of cream and 6.5 oz of butter.
