Of the guests at a charity fundraiser, 180 own both a house in the Hamptons and a house in Palm Beach. If not every guest at the fundraiser owns a house in either the Hamptons or Palm Beach, what is the ratio of the number of people who own a house in Palm Beach but not in the Hamptons to the number of people who own a house in the Hamptons but not in Palm Beach?

(1) One-half of the guests own a house in Palm Beach.

(2) Two-thirds of the guests own a house in the Hamptons.
