Answer :

Let the fraction be x/y.


According to question -


x + y = 8.....(1)


and,



On Cross multiplying, we get -


4x + 12 = 3y + 9


4x - 3y = - 3.....(2)


From equation (1), we get -


x = 8 - y.....(3)


Substituting the value of x in equation (2), we get -


4(8 - y) - 3y = - 3


7y = 35


y = 5


substituting the value of y in equation (3), we get -


x = 3


Thus, the required fraction is 3/5.
