Solution :-

Let the denominator be x.

Therefore numerator=x-3

After adding 2 to both the numerator and denominator,

New numerator=x-3+2=x-1

New denominator=x+2.
\( x= \dfrac{-12}{11}\)

Thus if \( \dfrac{-12}{11}\)

If x=10

Then the fraction= \( \dfrac{7}{10}\)

Thus the original fraction is \( \dfrac{7}{10}\)
