• To calculate the original fraction ,at first we have to set up equation as per the given clue in the question then calculate the value of x and y after that by putting the value of X and y to find the original fraction:-]

• The numerator of a fraction is 6 less than the denominator:-]

• If 3 is added to the numerator the fraction becomes 2/3:-]

• Here putting the value of N=D-6 in eq (ii)

• Now putting the value of D=9 in eq (i)

32

## ☄GIVEN:-

• Numerator is 6 less than the denominator.
• when 3 is added to Numerator fraction is equals to

## ☄FIND:-

• What will be the original fraction = ?

## ☄SOLUTION:-

Let the numerator be x

and the denominator be y.

Now,

Now,

now, in eq(ii)

collect like terms

put this value of y in eq. (i)
