Fractions and Decimals
If the numerator of a fraction is increased by 2 and denominator is increased by 3, the faction becomes 7/9 and if numerator as well as denominator are decreased by 1, the fraction becomes 4/5. What i
Let the numerator and denominator be p and q respectively.Then, (p + 2) / (q + 3) = 7/9⇒ 9(p + 2) = 7(q +3)⇒ 9p - 7q = 3 ....(i)Again, (p - 1) / (q - 1) = 4/5⇒ 5p - 4q = 1 ....(ii)Solving (i) and (ii) we get,p = 5, q = 6Required fraction = 5/6
