Default Photocopier size conversion

Photocopiers always have percentage reduction and enlargement as follows, 71% is half size and 141% is double, with 100% being 1:1.

The most common thing we have to do is enlarge a drawing from 1:2500 scale to 1:500, this is a 5 times increment, how do you calculate that as a copier percentage.
