Re: Decimal to Fraction Converter

Hi;

Looks fine from here.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Decimal to Fraction Converter

Hello

It works well. However, I have noticed some idiosyncrasies with many digits and repeating digits. It seems indecisive about whether to count a pattern as recurring or not when it repeats over 30 times, sometimes doing so, usually not. Also, every now and again (with over 30 digits) the greatest common factor is negative.

I think it is convenient that there is a way for it to interpret patterns as recurring, though
