Consider the numbers 7x and 11x,

Then, 7x+11x =306
18x      = 306
x     =  306÷18
x     = 17

Ans the numbers are 7 (17) , 11 (17) ie. 119 and 187

Let the two numbers be  7x and 11x
their sum is 7x+11x =18x
but here it is given that their sum is 306 .
this implies ,  18x = 306
or ,        x = 306÷18 = 17

so the numbers are :-
7x= 7×17=119 and 11x= 11×17=127
