Intensity of EM wave is

I=u_{av}C

For electric field 

(u_{\mathrm{av}})_E=\frac{1}{4} \varepsilon_{0} E_{0}^{2}

and for magnetic field (u_{\mathrm{av}})_B= \frac{1}{4 \mu_{0}} B_{0}^{2}

\text {Now, as we know, } \quad E_{0}=c B_{0} \text { and } \mu_{0} \varepsilon_{0}=\frac{1}{c^{2}} \text { so that, } \mu_{0}=\frac{1}{\varepsilon_{0} c^{2}} \text { and, }

So \frac{1}{4 \mu_{0}} B_{0}^{2}=\frac{\varepsilon_{0} c^{2}}{4}\left(\frac{E_{0}}{c}\right)^{2}=\frac{1}{4} \varepsilon_{0} E_{0}^{2}

So \frac{I_E}{I_B}=1
