Convert decimal numbers to fractions

Today in the blog to complete a bit with the work of rational numbers, I bring you a function that does the opposite work. Convert a number with decimals to fraction in an interesting way, so, without further ado, I show you.

DarListaFracciones delivers a list of approximate fractions to the number with decimals given by the argument d.

As the program as part of the structure of NumerosRacionales, as you can see in the section:

 ListFractions.Add (NewNumeroRacional (numerators (i), denominators (i)))

Crea un numero racional. Si quieren usarla en sus proyectos, solo deben sustituir por bien sea una cadena de texto o su propia estructura de la siguiente forma:

 ListaFracciones.Add(numeradores(i) & “/” & denominadores(i)))

Create a rational number If you want to use it in your projects, you should only replace it by either a text string or your own structure in the following way:

    Shared Function DarListaFracciones(d As Double) As List(Of NumeroRacional)

Dim numerators() As Integer = {0, 1}
Dim denominators() As Integer = {1, 0}
Dim ListFractions As New List(Of NumberRational)

Dim maxNumber As Long = GiveMaximumNumber(d)
Dim d2 As Double = d

Dim calcD As Double = Double.NaN
Dim prevCalcD As Double = Double.NaN

'"for" to avoid blocking by infinite loop
For i = 2 To 999
ReDim Preserve numerators(numerators.Length + 1)
ReDim Preserve denominators(denominators.Length + 1)

Dim L2 As Double = Math.Floor(d2)
numerators(i) = L2 * numerators(i - 1) + numerators(i - 2)
If (Math.Abs(numerators(i)) > maxnumber) Then Exit For

denominators(i) = L2 * denominators(i - 1) + denominatorses(i - 2)
calcD = numerators(i) / denominators(i)
If (calcD = prevCalcD) Then Exit For

ListaFracciones.Add(New RutionalNumber(numerators(i), denominadores(i)))

If (calcD = d) Then Exit For

prevCalcD = calcD
d2 = 1 / (d2 - L2)
End Function

With this function, what is done is to eliminate the comma of the number and gather everything as a block so that it is the maximum possible numerator to do the iterative division.

Shared Function DarMaximoNumber(f As Double) As Long
digitos As Long = 0
Dim DecimalSeparator As String = My.Application.Culture.NumberFormat.NumberDecimalSeparator

Dim ix As Integer = f.ToString().IndexOf(DecimalSeparator)
If ix <> -1 Then digitos = CLng(f.ToString().Remove(ix, 1))

Return digits
End Function

It's all for now, I'll soon get the application out so they can see the programs working.
