compute the simplest rational number in a real interval
SimplestRational( a, b )
realcons; real numbers with a<b
The SimplestRational( a, b ) command computes the "simplest" rational number pq such that a≤pq and pq≤b. It is "simplest" in the sense that p and q are as small as possible. (Note that an integer is considered to be "simpler" than a non-integral rational.)
If Maple is able to determine that b≤a, then an exception is raised.
Error, (in NumberTheory:-SimplestRational) first argument must be strictly less than the second
The NumberTheory[SimplestRational] command was introduced in Maple 2017.
