Hello all,

I'm new here and I've been looking for a forum board to help with some questions. I'm fairly new to C++ programming as I am a Freshman in College who has never programmed before College so it was a big jump. Anyways, I have this homework program assignment that I am a bit confused and could use a little guidance. If any information is missing to help let me know. Thank you in advance!

This is from my textbook:

below is my code so far:Quote:

This program involves making a class for rational numbers. I have to represent rational numbers as two values of type int, one for the numerator and one for the denominator.

Include a constructor with two arguments that can be used to set the member variables of an object to any legitimate values. Also include a constructor that has only a single parameter of type int; call this single parameter whole_number and define the constructor so that the object will be initialized to the rational number whole_number/1. also include a default constructor that initializes and object to 0. (that is, to 0/1)

Overload the input and output operators >> and <<. Numbers are to input and output in the forum 1/2, 25/32, 300/401 and so forth. Note that the numerator, denominator or both can have a minus sign.Overload all of the following operators so that they correctly apply to the type Rational: ==. <, <=, >, >=, +, -, * and /. Also write a test program to test the class.

Code:`#include`

<iostream>

using

namespace std;

class

Rational {

public:

Rational(); //Default constructor

Rational(int); //Second constructor

Rational(int, int); //Third constructor

void setData(int, int);

int getNumer(); // accessor function

int getDenom(); // accessor function

Rational operator>>(Rational &);

private:

int numerator;

int denominator;

};

Rational::Rational()

{

numerator = 0; denominator = 1;

}

Rational::Rational(int whole_number)

{

whole_number/1;

}

Rational::Rational(int num, int den)

{

numerator = num; denominator = den;

}

void Rational::setData(int num, int den)

{

numerator = num; denominator = den;

}

istream& operator>>(istream &in, Rational &rationalObj)

{

int n, d;

cout << "Enter numerator and denominator: ";

in >> n >> d;

rationalObj.setData(n, d);

return in;

}

// external non-friend version; need two accessor functions

ostream& operator<<(ostream &out, Rational &rationalObj)

{

out << rationalObj.getNumer() << "/"

<< rationalObj.getDenom();

return out;

}

intRational::getNumer()

{

return numerator;

}

intRational::getDenom()

{

return denominator;

}

int main()

{

Rational r1, r2, r3, r4;

return 0;

}
