1. "The denominator of a fraction is 12 more than the numerator."

let x = the numerator
x+12 = the denominator

"If 16 is added to the numerator and 16 is subtracted from the denominator, the value of the resulting fraction is equal to 2/1"

(x+16) / (x+12-16) = 2/1
x = ?

Use x to find the original numerator and denominator based on the first statement.
