Take the mean distance of the moon and the sun from the earth to be $0.4 \times 10^{6} \mathrm{~km}$ and $150 \times 10^{6} \mathrm{~km}$ respectively. Their masses are $8 \times 10^{22} \mathrm{~kg}$ and $2 \times 10^{30} \mathrm{~kg}$ respectively. The radius of the earth is $6400 \mathrm{~km}$. Let $\Delta \mathrm{F}_{1}$ be the difference in the forces exerted by the moon at the nearest and farthest points on the earth and $\Delta \mathrm{F}_{2}$ be the difference in the force exerted by the sun at the nearest and farthest points on the earth. Then, the number closest to $\frac{\Delta F_{1}}{\Delta F_{2}}$ is:
