numerator = 2x

and,

denominator = x

= 2x / x

therefore if 3 is added to both the sides then,

= 2x + 3 / x + 3

therefore the fraction is ,

2x / x

= 2 * - 3 / 4 / - 3 / 4

= - 3 / 2 / - 3 / 4

= - 3 / 2 * 4 / -3

= 2

therefore i think that the fraction is 2 / 1 or 2 .

i hope that my answer will help u...............................^_^
