**drwls**, Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 6:57amWe can choose to write the fraction as

x/(x+5). That will satisfy the first requirement about the numerator being 5 less than the denominator.

We are also told that

(x+1)/(x+6) = 2/3

Now solve for x.

x + 1 = (2/3)x + 4

x/3 = 3

x = 9

So the fraction is 9/14.
