    Answer:

    5:3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    40% = 2/5

    If the numbers are x and y, then

    2/5 x = 2/3 y

    Divide both sides by 2/5

    x  = (2/3 * 5/2)y

    x = 10/6 y

    x = 5/3  y

    So the required ratio is 5 : 3.

    Checking this result:

    10% of 5 = 2

    2/3 of 3 = 2 also.
