Answer:7/18

Step-by-step explanation:Let the numerator of fraction be x

so, denominator is 2x+4

If 6 is subtracted from both, denominator becomes 12 times the numerator.

According to question:-

12(x-6) = 2x+4-6

12x – 72 = 2x – 2

12x – 2x = 72 – 2

10x = 70

x =70/10

x = 7

so, the fraction is : x/2x+4

7/2(7)+4

7/14+4
