# Simplify or Reduce Fractions in Java

Zeeshan Afridi May 27, 2022

In Mathematics, the fraction represents a part or portion of the whole. It has two parts, numerator and denominator, where the numerator is the dividend, and the denominator is the divisor.

Example: `500/1000` is a fraction equal to `1/2` and `0.5`.

## Simplify or Reduce Fractions in Java

There is always more than one way to achieve a task or goal in computer programming. But the best and most effective solution is the one with the following characteristics:

1. concise and precise code
2. has high performance
3. has less space complexity

Fraction Example Code:

``````package articlecodesinjava;
class Fraction{

public static long gcd(long x, long y) {
return y == 0 ? x : gcd(y, x % y);
}

public static String asFraction(long x, long y) {
long gcd = gcd(x, y);
return (x / gcd) + "/" + (y / gcd);
}
}

class GuessingGame {
public static void main(String[] args){

Fraction obj = new Fraction();  // Create the object of Fraction class

System.out.println("Output");

System.out.println(obj.asFraction(500, 1000));
System.out.println(obj.asFraction(9, 3));
System.out.println(obj.asFraction(11, 2));
System.exit(0);
}
}
``````

Output:

``````Output
1/2
3/1
11/2
``````
