# Convert Rational Numbers to a Fraction

To convert a rational number to a fraction, you have to write it in the format of \(\frac{a}{b}\).

Both a and b are integers and they can be positive and negative but \(b≠0\).

For instance; each one of these numbers \(\frac{2}{7}, -\frac{5}{11}, \frac{-8}{-4}\), and \(\frac{-11}{-18}\) is a rational number.
