Given two Rational numbers, the task is to find the maximum of given two rational numbers.
Input : first = 3/4, second= 3/2 Output : 3/2 Input : first = 100/100, second = 300/400 Output : 100/100
A simple solution is to find float values and compare the float values. The float computations may cause precision errors. We can avoid them using below approach.
Say first = 3/2, second = 3/4
- First take a LCM of (4, 2) which is denominator of rational number. so the LCM of this is 4, then divide with both denominator and multiple with numerator of first and second respectively so the denominator value is first numerator = 6, second numerator = 3.
- Then find the max between these two. so here first numerator is max then print first rational number.
