Hello All,

I've put together this program for a rational class and it runs, but the problem is, it doesn't do what it's supposed to do. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

See ya on the flipside,

// This program will do arithmetic operations on two rational numbers entered from the keyboard.

double subtraction (Rational c);

denominator = denominator + c.denominator; // add denominator
return reduction();

if (gcd != 0)
