A function to convert a decimal to a fraction and result (returned as a string) should be calculated with LCM (least common multiple) in mind, example:
0.75 = 3/4 and not 75/100
1.3 = 1 1/3
The function will be used to convert weights (mg, g, kg) and capacities (ml, cl, l) for recipes, therefore there could be up to 3 numbers after the decimal point.
Furthermore, one asks why is 1.3 = 1 1/3 instead of 1 3/10. The answer is that in many recipes, you see 1/3 cup (easy to understand) instead of 3/10 cup (more accurate).
and that the function returns, fractions by:
#/2, #/3, #/4, #/5, etc... that is, the most common fractions possible which a user can easily interpret!!!
It should return the first fraction possible, because #/2 is easier to interpret than #/5 for most users.
I would appreciate a working demo showing off the conversion function. I've received my bids with demos ripped off Google searches and not even one does the job.
