96 is divided into two parts in such a way that seventh part of first and ninth part of second are equal. Find the smallest part?

$\frac{x}{7} = \frac{96-x}{9}\\9x = 7*96-7x\\x=42\\96-x=54\\42$

Let the first part be x then the second part will be (96-x)

A/q , x / 7 = (96-x)/9

on solving for x, we will get x = 42

So, first part will be 42 and the second part will be 54

clearly the smaller number is 42
