### Subject: Algebra

The ratio of two numbers is 5 to 1. The sum of the two numbers is 18. What are the two numbers?

The two numbers are 3 and 15. If you let x be the first number and y be the second number, then x+y=18. Using x/y=5/1 and you cross multiply, then x=5y. Replacing that equation into our original equation, it now reads 5y+y=18. Therefore, 6y=18. Using division, x=3. If you plug this into the original equation (3+y=18), then you can find y to be 15.
