Question Number 104460 by Anindita last updated on 21/Jul/20

The number of reading books is 1248  in a library. The number of story  books is 936. The librarians bought  more reading books. Now ((The number of Reading books)/(The number of story books ))  = ((11)/5). How many reading books were  bought ?

((1248+x)/(936))=(3/4)  4(1248+x)=3×936  4992+4x=2808  4x=−2184  x=−546  So your question is wrong  If ratio is (4/3) then books bought is 0.
