To add overloading operators to a class definition, you need to add them as a FRIEND function.

friend <type_name> operator <operator>(const <type_name>& var1, const <type_name>& var2)

// Example - rational is a class name not shown but defined else where
friend rational operator+(const rational& var1, const rational& var2){
<some code>
}

Would be how you would define a friend operator function. The difference between a friend function and an ordinary function that are defined in a class, the friend function is not a calling function from any one particular object but may be used for one or more objects (unary operation, binary operation)


Once you figure out how to overload the + operator, you can overload the << operator instead of using the show() function.

friend ostream& operator << (ostream& outs, const rational& object);
//Precondition. If outs is a file, outfile has been opened.
// Object have been given a value. Will output object members to outs ostream
}

Please reread what I wrote, then check your answer with mine. Do they look similar? Do they have the same amount of parameters? You also declined to add the friend function declaration in the class definition, without it, the class will not know where to look for the + operator.

Here is a quick tutorial that should help with your needs.

/*there is little difference b/w your and mine program your program take two value sum up them my program is little difference.1st i take two fraction ,e.g 6/4,9,15

first my program reduce these fraction e.g 6/4 into 3/2 ,9/4 into 3/5 then
add them eg
3/2+9/4
the answer must be 15/4 but my program provide wrong answer. what was wrong with it.... i can't understand the logic of the program.*/

// Example - rational is a class name not shown but defined else wherefriend rational operator+(const rational& var1, const rational& var2){<some code>}

What I wrote above is wrong with this set up. It is correct that the + operator only takes one argument, not two. The first argument is actually the variable on the left side of the + sign in the equation between the two objects. The second variable is the one that is passed which is on the right side of the object.

A + B // A is the first argument, B is the second which is passed to the function.

The reason why you want to overload an operator to a class is due to the unknown variables you actually want to add. You will specify which variables to be combined into a -new- object, the returned object.

// class
class stuff{
public:

  <some other functions declared>

   // declared friend operator 
   friend stuff operator +(const rational& obj);

private:
   int var1;
   int var2;
};
// declared function

stuff stuff::operator +(const rational& obj){
   stuff temp;    // will create a new object of type stuff to store the sum

   // we will add the two objects together with the desired variables and 
   // save them in the new temp object.

   temp.var1 = var1 + obj.var1;
   // in the example of A + B, var1 is referenced to A, 
   // and obj.var1 is referenced to B.

   temp.var2 = var2 + obj.var2;
   // in the example of A + B, var2 is referenced to A, 
   // and obj.var2 is referenced to B.
  
   // now to return the new object with the saved results of both A + B
   return temp;
}
rational rational ::operator +(rational r){


rational sum;
sum.numerator =numerator+sum.numerator;
sum.dnomenator=dnomenator+sum.dnomenator;
cout<<"The sum afer adeng both fraction  is  :"<<endl;
return sum;

}

Few things wrong with the logic of this.
1. You need to add two separate objects together, not one object and the sum of two objects.

Ex.
You want A + B = C
not A + C = C

This is shown with both additions in the previous code.

2. You need to find a common denominator between both fractions. If they are already equal, then you can just add the numerator and KEEP THE SAME denominator. If both denominators are different, you need to find a common denominator, then change the numerators respectively prior to adding the numerators.

Finally, you can use your reduction function to simply your answer.
