##### Canadian Computing Competition: 2002 Stage 1, Junior #4, Senior #2

Many advanced calculators have a fraction feature that will simplify fractions for you. You are to write a program that will accept for input a non-negative integer as a numerator and a positive integer as a denominator, and output the fraction in simplest form. That is, the fraction cannot be reduced any further, and the numerator will be less than the denominator. You can assume that all input numerators and denominators will produce valid fractions.

#### Sample Input 1

```
28

```

#### Sample Output 1

`4`

#### Sample Input 2

```
13
5
```

#### Sample Output 2

`2 3/5`

#### Sample Input 3

```
0
7
```

#### Sample Output 3

`0`

#### Sample Input 4

```
55
10
```

#### Sample Output 4

`5 1/2`

## Comments

Good Question. I approve.

Does anyone know why my code is not working? Help would be much appreciated!

On sample 4, your most recent submission outputs "5 5/10" instead of "5 1/2"

Thank you so much! I have finally solved the problem :)

Can someone please explain why problem 5 is not working for me?

the denominator can't be zero

For test 4 and 5 it keeps getting wrong where is the problem please help.

For test case 4 it's 4 0/3 which is just 4 but I keep getting it wrong. Help

Your code suffers from precision issues (that is, a value of 1 in double ends up being "stored" as 0.9999999.... and that gets rounded down)

As a good rule of thumb, whenever you can avoid floating point arithmetic, you should.

If the answer turns out to be 0 and a fraction, do we just need to print 0? I keep getting a wrong answer on the answers with 0 in them

If the answer is 0 1/2, don't print the 0
