The denominator of a fraction is 3 more than its numerator. 
When 1/2 is added to this fraction, the resulting fraction's denominator is twice the denominator of the original fractions and its numerator is 1 more than its denominator. 

What is the numerator of the original fraction?

4/7 + 1/2 = 8/14 + 7/14 = 15/14   numerator of original fxn = 4

you have x/(x+3). then you add 1/2 and you have (3x+3)/(2x+6). this means 3x+3 is 1 more than x, so x = -1.

 

HOPE THIS HELPED!
