# Simplify fractions for use in feedback browsing

• Sometimes in the feedback you have a fraction, but due to the randomised numbers you have it might end up not being in it's simplest form. For example consider you random numbers $a &$b and want to have $a/$b in LaTeX

$$\frac{a}{b}$$
. To ensure that it is in it's simplest form I use this MapleTA code:

MapleTA:

$a = rint(1, 20);$b = rint(1, 20);

$gcd = gcd($a, $b);$numerator = $a/$gcd;

$denominator =$b/\$gcd;

LaTeX:

$$\frac{numerator}{\denominator}$$
