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?
