Fracty

Fracty is a decimal-to-fraction conversion module that solves the many well known problems with decimal-to-fraction conversion modules. Those common problems include overlooking conversion inaccuracies in the IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic (IEEE 754), mishandling numbers with trailing repeat patterns, and incorrect or partial pattern recognition.


API

fracty(number)

var fracty = require('fracty');
 

 


-- Example 1 --

console.log(fracty(6.9024390243902));

Output will be:

6 37/41

   


-- Example 2 --

console.log(fracty(4.285714285714));

Output will be:

4 2/7

   


-- Example 3 --

console.log(fracty(-1.1425));

Output will be:

-1 57/400

 

Notes

Fracty simply takes one argument, a number without any rounding and, in keeping with the most standard numbering conventions of monetary divisibility, etc., imagines that any trailing repeating patterns beyond two decimal places continue infinitely, and returns that input as a string of the fully reduced fraction equivalent.

Installation

With npm do

$ npm install fracty
