Explore the Back-StoryTry this beautiful problem from the PRMO, 2019 based on Rational Number and Integer.

let the rational number \(\frac{p}{q}\) be closest to but not equal to \(\frac{22}{7}\) among all rational numbers with denominator < 100, find p-3q.

- is 107
- is 14
- is 840
- cannot be determined from the given information

Rational number

Algebra

Integer

Answer: is 14.

PRMO, 2019, Question 9

Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight

|\(\frac{22}{7}-\frac{p}{q}\)|=|\(\frac{22q-7p}{7q}\)| then |22q-7p|=1 for smallest value

and q=99 then p=311

p-3q=311-(3)(99)=311-297=14.
