First part: x
Second part: 1.25x   (Convert 125% to decimal, 1.25)

Equation:

     x + 1.25x = 360

     2.25x = 360

     2.25x/2.25 = 360/2.25

     x = 160

Substitute: x = 160

   First Part:  x = 160
   Second Part:  1.25 (160) = 200

ANSWER:  The two parts are 160 and 200.

Check:
   160 + 200 = 360
   360 = 360    (True)
