Java Question

What I need to convert decimal to fractions. It is easy to convert to 10's feet.

`1.5 => 15/10`

This can do via this code:

`public class Rational {`

private int num, denom;

public Rational(double d) {

String s = String.valueOf(d);

int digitsDec = s.length() - 1 - s.indexOf('.');

int denom = 1;

for (int i = 0; i < digitsDec; i++) {

d *= 10;

denom *= 10;

}

int num = (int) Math.round(d);

this.num = num;

this.denom = denom;

}

public Rational(int num, int denom) {

this.num = num;

this.denom = denom;

}

public String toString() {

return String.valueOf(num) + "/" + String.valueOf(denom);

}

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.out.println(new Rational(1.5));

}

}

But what I want is

`1.5 => 3/2`

and I don't get how to proceed.

My question is not a duplication. Because other related question is C#. This is java.

You should find the greatest common divisor of the resulted numbers and divide the numerator and denominator by it.

Here is one way to do it:

```
public class Rational {
private int num, denom;
public Rational(double d) {
String s = String.valueOf(d);
int digitsDec = s.length() - 1 - s.indexOf('.');
int denom = 1;
for (int i = 0; i < digitsDec; i++) {
d *= 10;
denom *= 10;
}
int num = (int) Math.round(d);
int g = gcd(num, denom);
this.num = num / g;
this.denom = denom /g;
}
public Rational(int num, int denom) {
this.num = num;
this.denom = denom;
}
public String toString() {
return String.valueOf(num) + "/" + String.valueOf(denom);
}
public static int gcd(int num, int denom) {
....
}
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println(new Rational(1.5));
}
}
```
