Two strings have the same length and thickness and are made of the same material. When both strings are simultaneously vibrated at their fundamental frequencies, you observe that the resulting tone has a frequency of $310\text{ Hz}$, while beats with a frequency of $20.0\text{ Hz}$ are also present.

What is the ratio of the tension of the string with a higher frequency to the tension of the string with the lower frequency?
