Posted 14 Mar 2014 · Report post There are two fractions, 34/55 and 55/89. We are looking for a third fraction of positive integers a/b, where 34/55>a/b>55/89 and 55<b<89. What is the smallest b where this is possible? -1 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

0 Posted 14 Mar 2014 · Report post The smallest b for a fraction in this range is 144 and the fraction is 89/144. I couldn't find any fractions with b<89 that would fall in the range between 55/89 and 34/55. 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
