line 56: `int rational::Add(rational r)` What do you expect the Add() function to be doing? line 58 creates an uninitialized variable of type rational and you are using its random contents in lines 61 and 62. The result of that calculation on line 64 will be garbage.

Some recommendations for enhancement:
1. operator + () instead of Add(),
2. operator << () instead of print()
3. operator >> () instead of input()
