  1. Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the denominator be x

    and the numberator be x-4

    Now, According to question,

    x-4+7/ x+7 = 2/3

    x+3 / x+7 = 2/3

    3(x+3) = 2(x+7)

    3x+9 = 2x+14

    3x-2x = 14-9

    x= 5

    Therfore, denoimator= 5 and the numberator = 5-4 =1

    So, the fraction is 1/5
