Aspect Ratio situation, Simple Math question

Hi there.

I have a porblem with some footage, the client filmed in Red cam 5K , 5120X2700 which is a 1.9:1 aspect ratio I think, and when they pass me the footage proxies they convert the 5120X2700 1.9:1 aspect ratio to a 1920x1080 16:9, so the proxies have a black letter box. :S
The final video needs to be 16:9 without letter boxes, the question is WHATS THE EXACT % OF SCALE I need to add in AE to eliminate those letter boxes?

Thank you very much!!

add 6,6666...% to height. You are now on 37,5% of the
initial size. (1920=0.375*5120)You want a height of 1080 and you have
2700*1920/5120=1012.5, therefor you multiply by
1080/1012.5=1,066666... or 1 +6/99(exactly105/99is the scale factor).
