Decimal to Fraction ConverterAn automatic Decimal to Fraction Converter. Does it work for you? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20060810 11:32:20
Re: Decimal to Fraction ConverterIs it supposed to be just a white box with an entry field for a number and an output box for the decimal? Last edited by Zhylliolom (20060810 11:35:00) #3 20060810 12:02:25
Re: Decimal to Fraction ConverterDid you use the euclidean algorithm to find the gcd? If you didn't, doing so would drastically speed things up. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #4 20060810 23:55:16#5 20060811 04:14:49
Re: Decimal to Fraction Converter
It sure does. It'll be pretty useful for homework or just for fun, or for some other purpose. Nice work, especially with the text design for the title of it. #6 20060813 15:55:13

Well of course ... ummm ... not. So I do now! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20060813 18:28:13
Re: Decimal to Fraction ConverterWow, the Euclidean algorithm sped this up exponentially. It works a lot better now, it instantly gives the answer.
