# the denominator of a rational  no. is greater than its numerator by 7. if the numerator is increased by 17 and the denominator is decreased by 6, the new number becomes 2. fin the original number.

Dear Student!

Let the numerator of the rational number be x.

Given, Denominator = Numerator + 7

∴ Denominator of the rational number = x + 7

When numerator is increased by 17 and denominator is decreased by 6, the fraction becomes 2.

Original fraction

Let the numerator be x,so the denominator=x+7

x+17/x+7-6=2

x+17/x+1=2

x+17=2x+2

x=5

The rational no. is 5/12...
