#1**+1 **

Let the numbers be n and m, with n > m

n + m = 5(n - m)

Distribute the 5 on the right

n + m = 5n - 5m

Add 5m to both sides

n + 6m = 5n

Subtract n from both sides

6m = 4n

Divide both sides by 4

1.5m = n

Divide both sides by m

1.5 = n/m

or n/m = 1.5. This is the ratio of the larger number to the smaller.
