# decimal to fraction (just display)

 0 hey, how do I go about taking a two decimal place decimal number and showing it as a fraction? Just in the GUI.Label so value / value would still be fine. :D more ▼ asked Feb 19 '11 at 02:34 AM Jason Hamilton 445 ● 68 ● 73 ● 80 add new comment (comments are locked) 10|3000 characters needed characters left ▼ Viewable by all users

 0 Multiply it by 100, and then put it over 100. For example: 0.77 becomes 77/100 eg: string Frac = Convert.ToInt32(MyDecimal*100).ToString()+"/100"; You can attempt to reduce it to it's lowest common denominator if you wish, but thats more work. Not much more, but more. more ▼ answered Feb 19 '11 at 03:02 AM Fanboy 309 ● 1 ● 1 ● 4 It worked, but about that finding the LCM.... how do I find the factors of a number (in javascript :P) and compare them to the factors of 100? Feb 19 '11 at 05:24 AM Jason Hamilton You just loop through each possible integer from the numerator down to 2, and attempt to divide both the numerator and denominator by that number. if the result of both has no remainder, you have found the lowest common denominator.
