Answer :

Suppose the denominator of the rational number is x.

Then, according to the question, numerator = Denominator – 2


= x – 2


Now,



On cross multiplying we get,


2(x-2-1) = x -1


2(x-3) = x-1


2x – 6 = x- 1


x = 5


Hence, the denominator = 5


And numerator = 5-2 = 3


the rational number =
