Hi,
I would like to modify my program to do the following:
  I need to use the following definitions to create 4 rational objects:
Rational P(70,36)
const Rational Q(51,-90)
const Rational R(-34,-60)
Rational S=Q.add(R); //member function add() adds Q and R
The print out should look like this:
P = 70/36 = 35/18 = 1.94444
Q = 50/(-90) = -17/30 = -0.566667
R = -34/(-60) = 17/30 = 0.566667
S = Q + R = 0/1 = 0
P + Q = 62/45 = 1.37778
Q - R = -17/15 = -1.13333
Q * R = -289/900 = -0.321111
P/R = 175/51 = 3.43137
P/S = Error: Divide by zero. Default value 0/1 is returned.
I know I need these public member functions:
    a)addition of two rational numbers
    b)subtraction of two rational numbers
    c)multiplication of two rational numbers
    d)division of two rational numbers
        and each of these should be stored in reduced form.
    e)printing rational numbers in the form a/b where a is the numerator and
b is the denominator
    f)printing rational numbers in floating point format
and they are already in my rational.h but I need help in implementing them
in the rational.cpp program.
Thanks for the help.

You've done all the hard work.  

>> a)addition of two rational numbers
Done.  Use +
>> b)subtraction of two rational numbers
Done.  Use -
>> c)multiplication of two rational numbers
Done.  Use *
>> d)division of two rational numbers
Done Use /
>>  e)printing rational numbers in the form a/b where a is the numerator and
>>  b is the denominator
done use <<

All you need now is to use them from main, like

int main()
{
   Rational P(70,36);
   const Rational Q(51,-90);
   const Rational R(-34,-60);  
   Rational S=Q + R;  // NOTE + instead of "add()".

  // To produce the first line of ouput.
  cout << "P = " << P << " = ";
  P.Reduce(); //// Note for this Reduce() must be made public.
  cout << P << " = " << P.LongDecimal();
}

You should be able to figure out the other lines for yourself.  (You will pretty much have to, as we can only provide very limited on school assignments.)  If you have questions, let me know.
