What numbers divide

Hi, I am looking for a website or excel formula that would be able to put in a number and be given two numbers that divided would give that number.

So for instance if I put in .25. It would say that 30 and 120 divided together would equal .25.

Thanks!

You do realize that there are an infinite number of pairs? I'd do it this way. Define m as your ratio, then form the following equation: y = mx. Pick an x and calculate the y. That will give you your two numbers.
