1/9 and 4/8

Step-by-step explanation:

2. ☯ The denominator of a rational number is less than its numerator than 5. So,

Let the numerator of rational number be x.

Therefore, denominator of rational number is (x – 5).

⠀⠀⠀⠀━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

☯ If 5 is added to the numerator, the new number becomes 11/6.

⠀⠀⠀⠀━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Therefore,

• Numerator, x = 17
• Denominator, (x – 5) = 17 – 5 = 12

Hence, The required rational number is 17/12.
