1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two charged particles move in the same direction with respect to the same magnetic field. Particle 1 travels eight times faster than particle 2. However, each particle experiences a magnetic force of the same magnitude. Find the ratio q1/q2 of the magnitudes of the charges.

2. Relevant equations

B=F/qVsin(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

BqVsin(theta)=BqVsin(theta)

and then B and sin(theta) cancel but i dont know where to go from here??
