Let the first part be x.
Therefore the 2nd part will be 288 - x.
According to the condition:
begin mathsize 16px style rightwards double arrow straight x over 3 space minus space 2 over 3 open parentheses 288 space minus space straight x close parentheses space equals space 8
rightwards double arrow straight x space minus space 576 space plus space 2 straight x space equals space 24
rightwards double arrow 3 straight x space equals space 600
rightwards double arrow straight x space equals 200
and space 288 space minus space straight x space equals space 288 space minus space 200 space equals space 88
end style
Therefore the two parts of 288 are 200 and 88.
