property does nt hold true for 6/3 vs 12/9 chetan2u . where am i going wrong ?



The property will hold true for fractions <1..
6/3 and 12/9 are >1..

Denominator has to be greater than numerator for this..
Fractions greater than 1 will have NUMERATOR>denominator an the effect will be opposite here..

Reason when you increase smaller number , it could be numerator or denominator, the effect will be more than same increase in bigger number..
Since a number say 6 will be a bigger % of smaller number..

Straight forward E)

Use Componendo and dividendo theorem.
If A/B = C/D = > (A+B)/(A-B) = (C+D)/(C-D) by Componendo and dividendo.

You will achieve at the right answer in seconds.



There's a rule, If you keep adding 1 to both numerator and denominator of a fraction, the value of the fraction approaches 1. Applicable in both cases 1) when numerator > denominator (value will increase) and 2) numerator < denominator (value will decrease).
