I have only just started a course in 'C', as you can see below I havent got very far.
I need to know how to enter a fraction as 1/4 rarther than 14 as i have set it below.
Any help would be nice.
Thanks Guys..

#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
int fraction;
                 
printf("\nEnter a Fraction 1/4 as 14 same with other Fractions\n");

printf("for the decimal equivalent ");
scanf("%d", &fraction);

if( fraction == 1/4 )
printf(" The Decimal equivalent for 1/4 is 0.25 ");
else
if( fraction == 1/3 )
printf(" The Decimal equivalent for 1/3 is 0.33 ");

}

hi dude,

use float or double to input fractions:



#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
     int f1,f2;
               
     printf("\nEnter a Fraction [1/4 as 14]: \n");
     scanf("%d/%d", &f1,&f2);

     if(f2 == 0)
          printf("Can't have a fraction with 0\n");
     else
     {
          float fraction = f1/(float)f2;
          printf(" The Decimal equivalent for %d / %d is: %f\n\n", fraction);
}
}

good luck

sorry the last printf line should be:
          printf(" The Decimal equivalent for %d / %d is: %f\n\n", f1,f2,fraction);
