    Default product of fractions

    Hi to all ,sorry fo my bad english. I have the following code Java (is it just a meaningless example ), my question is: if I wanted to insert a code to multiply two fraction into moltiplicaPer() metod What should I write? Thx in advance. Antonio

    public class Frazione {

    private int num;
    private int den;


    Frazione() {
    num = 0;
    den = 1;
    }

    Frazione(int a, int b) {
    num = a;
    den = b;

    }

    public void moltiplicaPer(Frazione f2) {

    //insert code here...
    }


    }//end class

    Default Re: product of fractions

    Well, mathematically the product of two fractions n1/d1 and n2/d2 is (n1*n2)/(d1*d2); it won't be much different in Java code ...

    kind regards,

    Thanks, but I wanted this mean:

    public void moltiplicaPer(Frazione f2){
    Frazione r = new Frazione();
    r.num = f2.num * num;
    r.den = f2.den * den;
    }

    Yep, that's close but you should return the new Frazione r and maybe simplify the numerator and denominator.
