going from fraction to decimal is easy, you just divide. to go from decimal to fraction is a bit harder.

the algorithm i came up with for that is you multiply and if the result is an integer, that is the numerator and what you were dividing by is the denominator.

you loop through integers to find the denominator.

for example 1/4 = .25

you multiply .25 X 2 = .5 = no

.25 X 3 = .75 = no

.25 X 4 = 1 = yes

so .25 = 1/4

this works except for repeating numbers like .333333333333333333333

is there a way to make my algorithm work?

Jan, your a man after my own heart. I used to listen to him until the local station here(where he lives) cancelled him. I went along with him to an extent, but he lost credibility with me when he claimed sandy hook never happened.

Well, my battery was almost dead so I didn't finish the story. I refused to pay the bills so they eventually shut off my electric. By then the tavern owner bought the building so he could evict me. But here's the good part. I was walking by there maybe a month later and it was shut down. Something about selling drugs.

In 1988 I started a tv repair shop. I shared a building with a tavern, All went wei for a couple of years , then a new guy bought the tavern.

He tapped into my electrify to run his coolers. My bills went through the roof. I turned it off. The police came and made me turn it back on, I called the electric company and they just sent me bills. IQ will

Speaking to the side topic, by the time a hurricane hits Ireland it is pretty worn out. Its kind of like when Harvey hit here in Austin, we are far enough from the coast we got only very strong winds and 2 solid days of rain.

I was listening to a gardening program on the radio today and some guy called about planting peas now. The answer was that here in Texas peas will grow and produce all winter as long as you protect them from the occasional freeze. At the end they said "give peas a chance".
