Two numbers are in ratio 3:7. The difference between the numbers is 36. Find the numbers.

9 and 18

9 and 27

18 and 27

27 and 63

Let the numbers be 3x and 7x. Thus the ratio is 3:7. The difference between them would be 7x-3x = 4x Given that the difference is 36, we get => 4x = 36 => x = 9 Thus the numbers are 3x and 7x which means 27 and 63.
