The numerator of a certain fraction is 5 less than the denominator, if the fraction is equal to 3/4, what is the denominator of the fraction?

Assume that the numerator is x --> the denominator is x+5
x / x+5 = 3/4
4x = 3 ( x + 5 )
4x = 3x + 15
4x - 3x = 15
x = 15
therefore the denominator is x + 5 = 15 + 5 = 200
