The denominator of a fraction is 12 more than the numerator. If 16 is added to the numerator and 16 is subtracted from the denominator, the value of the resulting fraction is equal to 2/1. Find the original fraction

"The denominator of a fraction is 12 more than the numerator."
let x = the numerator
x+12 = the denominator
"If 16 is added to the numerator and 16 is subtracted from the denominator, the value of the resulting fraction is equal to 2/1"
(x+16) / (x+1216) = 2/1
x = ?
Use x to find the original numerator and denominator based on the first statement.
