#### 1 Answer

##### Solution :-

Let the common ratio between these numbers be x. Therefore, the numbers will be 5xand 3xrespectively.

Difference between these numbers = 18

5x - 3x = 18

2x = 18

Dividing both sides by 2,

$$\frac{2x}{2} =\frac{18}{2}$$

x = 9

First number = 5x= 5 × 9 = 45

Second number = 3x= 3 × 9 = 27
