10 and 40

#### Explanation:

We can represent our first number with $x$, and since the other number will be $4$ times the other, we can represent this with $4 x$.

Their sum is 50, so we can set up another equation:

$x + 4 x = 50$

This simplifies to:

$5 x = 50$

$x = 10$

10 is our first number, and to find the second number, multiply 10 by 4 to get 40.
