### Still have math questions?

In a certain fraction, the denominator is $$6$$ more than the numerator. If $$3$$ is added to both the numerator and the denominator, the resulting fraction is equivalent to $$\frac { 5 } { 7 }$$ . What was the original fraction (not written in lowest terms)?
$$x \text { represents the original numerator; } \frac { x + 3 } { ( x + 6 ) + 3 } = \frac { 5 } { 7 } ; \frac { 12 } { 18 }$$
