The denominator of a fraction is 2 more than its numerator.

When 1212 is added to this fraction, the resulting fraction's denominator is twice the denominator of the original fraction and its numerator is 1 more than its denominator.

What is the numerator of the original fraction?

How to do this?

Thanks for the tips guys

#2**+1 **

x / (x+2) + 1/2 = ( 2(x+2) +1)/ (2(x+2)) cross multiply L side

(2x + 2 + x )/(2(x+2)) = (2x+4 +1) / (2(x+2) eliminate the denominators

3x+2 = 2x+5

x=3

fraction is 3/5

3/5 + 1/2 = 6/10 + 5/10 = 11/10 Check!
