let the numerator be a and the denominator b. One of the equations is 2a=b+2. The other equation is (a+3)/b+3)=2/3. The solution gives a=7 and b=12. First check 2*7=12+2. Second check (7+3)/(12+3)=2/3

According to number theory of mathematics , a perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its positive divisors excluding the number itself.
For example :
6 => 1+2+3
28 =>1+2+4+7+14

I know one more number that is a perfect number and contains not more than 2 digits (i.e 496 won't be consider as it contains 3 digits).
