## ROTC89

Hi I am new to python. I am trying to get my fraction program to work but I keep getting this error message: Any advice would be helpful!

``````File "main.py", line 5, in ?
from fraction import*
File "/home/students/bf133052/CS4223/fraction.py", line 10
def__init__(self,numerator,denominator=1):
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax``````

here is the main.py

``````#file: main.py

from fraction import*

f=fraction()

i=fraction(7,13)

c=fraction(3,30)

r=fraction()

r.set(20,45)

m=i.multipy(c)

d=i.divide(c)

print "f =", f

print "i =", i

print "c =", c

print "r =", r

print "i*c", m

print "i/c", d``````
``````# file: fraction.py
# Fraction Class to be used

class Fraction:
"A class to use to solve fractions"

#Constructor method, creates the fraction 0/1 by default or creates the
#fraction a/b if values of a and b are supplied.

def__init__(self,numerator,denominator=1):
g = gcd(numerator, denominator)
self.numerator = numerator / g
self.denominator = denominator / g

def__str__(self):
return "%d / %d %(self.numerator, self.denominator)

def multiply(self, f):
x = fraction(self.numerator * f.numerator, self.denominator * f.denominator)
return x

def divide(self, f):
d = fraction(self.numerator * f.denominator,self.denominator * f.numerator)
return d

def flip(self):
"reverse the fraction"
return fraction(self.denominator, self.numerator)``````

There is a space between the "def" and the function name, so it is
def __init__(self):

If you can, check out the fractions module.

The source is included with Python. If you can locate it, you can see how the author(s) did it.

thank you for all your help! i got it working finally.
