| To find the numbers, we first count the total number of parts of those numbers. To do this, add five and four.

1) 5 + 4 = 9.

2) Now we will find one part of each number. For this 180: 9 = 20.

The first number has five parts, and the second has four. Now let’s multiply:

3) 5 * 20 = 100.

4) 4 * 20 = 80.

Let’s check the received numbers so that they add up to 180.

100 + 80 = 180. It all came together.

Answer: the first number is 100, the second number is 80.
