Simplifying results from rat function

3 views (last 30 days)
Suppose I have found the decimal value:
Which by the way I know to be 9/14
if I go:
result =rat(0.642857142857143)
I get the interesting symbolic output:
'1 + 1/(-3 + 1/(5))'
How do I now go about turning this symbolic numerical expression into something
like '9/14' ?
I thought maybe simplifyFraction would suffice, but looks like that is reserved for algebraic espressionss

[N,D] = rat(0.642857142857143)
N = 9
D = 14
