the denominator of fraction is 2 more than numerator. if 1 is subtracted from numerator and 1is added to denominator the fraction becomes 1/2 what is that fraction. About the author Adeline

Answer: 5/7 Step-by-step explanation: let the numerator be x the denominator is 2more so, x/x+2 if 1added to the denominator and 1subtracted from the numerator, x-1/x+2+1 = x-1/x+3 =1/2 cross multiply 2(x-1)= x+3 2x-2 = x+3 2x- x = 3+2 x= 5 so the numerator is 5 and so denominator would be x+2 i.e 5+2 = 7 ans is 5/7 Reply

Answer:5/7

Step-by-step explanation:let the numerator be x

the denominator is 2more so,

x/x+2

if 1added to the denominator and 1subtracted from the numerator,

x-1/x+2+1 =

x-1/x+3 =1/2

cross multiply

2(x-1)= x+3

2x-2 = x+3

2x- x = 3+2

x= 5

so the numerator is 5 and so denominator would be x+2 i.e 5+2 = 7

ans is 5/7
