**Lab
1 – Fraction addition**** **

Write a program in
the C/C++ programming language to input and add two fractions each
represented as a numerator and denominator. Do not use classes or
structures. Print your result (which is also
represented as a numerator/denominator) to standard out. If you get done early,
try to simplify your result with the least common denominator. The following equation
can be used to add fractions:

**a/b
+ c/d = (a*d + b*c)/(b*d)**

Example:

**1/2
+ 1/4 = ( 1(4) + 2(1) ) / 2(4) = 6/8 = 3/4**

Compile
your C/C++ program with the following command (assume your program is saved as **lab1.C** or **lab1.cpp**)

**jdoe@shaula****% g++ –o lab1 lab1.C (or lab1.cpp)**

To execute your program:

**jdoe@shaula****% lab1 **
