Solution

Calculating the two unknown numbers:

The given ratio is 5:3.

Consider two numbers 5y and 3y, such that y is a common multiple of two numbers.

The difference between the two numbers is given as 18.

5y-3y=182y=18y=182y=9

Substituting the value of y in the two numbers 5y and 3y:

5y=5×95y=45

3y=3×93y=27

Hence, the two numbers are 45 and27.
