## Problem

Consider the set of all fractions $\frac{x}{y}$, where $x$ and $y$ are relatively prime positive integers. How many of these fractions have the property that if both numerator and denominator are increased by $1$, the value of the fraction is increased by $10\%$?

$\textbf{(A) }0\qquad\textbf{(B) }1\qquad\textbf{(C) }2\qquad\textbf{(D) }3\qquad\textbf{(E) }\text{infinitely many}$

## Solution

You can create the equation $\frac{x+1}{y+1}=(1.1)(\frac{x}{y})$

$\frac{x+1}{y+1}=\frac{1.1x}{y}$

$(x+1)(y)=(1.1x)(y+1)$

$xy+y=1.1xy+1.1x$

$y=.1xy+1.1x$

$10y=xy+11x$
