The major scale of C and the natural minor scale of A contain the same notes. They are relative scales. C is the relative major of A, and A is the relative minor of C:

In order to identify the relative minor of a major scale, its sixth degree has to be identified. For instance, the relative minor of F major is its sixth degree, D.

As for relative majors, third degree has to be identified. For instance, the relative major of C minor is its third degree, E flat.
