## Answers ( )

let, x must be added.

Now, (7+x)/(13+x) = 2/3

or, 3(7+x) = 2(13+x)

or, 21+3x = 26+2x

or, 3x-2x = 26-21

or, x = 5.

## so, 5 must be added.

Answer:pls mark as brainliest

Step-by-step explanation:solution :

given ratio = 7:13

Let x should be added to each term so it become 2:3

(7+x ): ( 13 + x ) = 2:3

– 3(7+x) = 2( 13 + x)

= 21 + 3x = 26 + 2x

– 3x – 2x = 26 – 21

» x= 5

.: We should add 5 to each term of the ratio to 7:13 so it becomes 2:3
