# Sum of two numbers if the original ratio and new ratio obtained by adding a given number to each number is given

Given a ratio **a : b** of two unknown numbers. When both the numbers are incremented by a given integer **x**, the ratio becomes **c : d**. The task is to find the sum of the two numbers.**Examples:**

Input:a = 2, b = 3, c = 8, d = 9, x = 6Output:5

Original numbers are 2 and 3

Original ratio = 2:3

After adding 6, ratio becomes 8:9

2 + 3 = 5Input:a = 1, b = 2, c = 9, d = 13, x = 5Output:12

**Approach:** Let the sum of the numbers be **S**. Then, the numbers can be **(a * S)/(a + b)** and **(b * S)/(a + b)**.

Now, as given:

(((a * S) / (a + b)) + x) / (((b * S) / (a + b)) + x) = c / dor((a * S) + x * (a + b)) / ((b * S) + x * (a + b)) = c / dSo,S = (x * (a + b) * (c - d)) / (ad - bc)

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
