    Answer:

    3/8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the numerator be ‘x’ and denominator be ‘y’. Thus, fraction be x/y.

    y = 2 + 2x        [given]

    If the numerator is decreased by 1, fraction becomes 1/4.

    ⇒ (x – 1)/y = 1/4

    ⇒ (x – 1)/(2 + 2x) = 1/4

    ⇒ 4(x – 1) = 2 + 2x

    ⇒ 4x – 4 = 2 + 2x

    ⇒ 4x – 2x = 2+4       ⇒ x = 3

      thus, y = 2 + 2x = 2 + 2(3) = 8

    ∴ Fraction = x/y = 3/8

    y = 2 + 2x        [given]

    If the numerator is decreased by 1, fraction becomes 1/4.

    ⇒ (x – 1)/(2 + 2x) = 1/4

    ⇒ 4(x – 1) = 2 + 2x

    ⇒ 4x – 4 = 2 + 2x

    ⇒ 4x – 2x = 2+4       ⇒ x = 3

      thus, y = 2 + 2x = 2 + 2(3) = 8

    ∴ Fraction = x/y = 3/8
