Straightforward: 70 + 48 or 72 + 46

With other ways: below ↓

Make a ratio and increase.

6:4

Find the least common multiples.

72:48

Next, take these 2 out of ratio form and add them together.

72

+48

120

Since the closest we get is 120...

We must change the LCM'S to get the true number. Either way, it will work if you reduce 48 by 2, or 72 by 2. Same answer.

Therefore,

Our problem answer can be seen as the original ratio, but modified, 72:48 or simply 70 + 48. For the ratio to be correct, you would have to factorize the least common multiples and re-add. I would not recommend this.
