X = represents the '1' in the given ratio 1:4
4x = represents the 4 on the given ratio 1:4

x(4x)=46\\4x^2=36\\ \frac{4x^2}{4} = \frac{36}{4} \\x^2=9\\ \sqrt{x^2} = \sqrt{9} \\x=3

x = 3
4x = 12

Therefore, the two numbers are 3:12 or -3 : -12 

x = 3 or -3         while
4x = 12 or -12

(3)(12) = (-3)(-12)
36 = 36
So it's just the same... but I guess, the best answer is 3 and 12, usually the positive sign thingy is the best, uhm I can't explain it well but that's it, the answer:    3 : 12 or -3 : -12
