    guys this is the ans..

    let the denominator be x..

    so, numerator will be= x-4

    According to the given condition..

    adding 1 to both numerator n denominator..

    denominator.= x+1

    numerator. = x-4+1

    = (x-3)

    now, when 1 is added to both numerator n denominator then fraction is 1/2.

    N/D. = 1/2

    x-3/x+1. =. 1/2

    now, do cross multiplication..

    so,

    2(x-3). =. 1(x+1)

    2x -6 =. 1x+1

    2x-6 =. 1x+1

    2x +1x = 1+6

    3x. = 7

    x. = 7/3

    therefore, the required fraction is 7/3.

    thanks..
