Mathematica question (approximation)
How can we find the least p and q positive integers of an x positive real
number for that:
Thank you very much in advance!

Re: Mathematica question (approximation)
I suppose you could take the continued fraction of x and take successive terms until it was good enough. If you need the absolute smallest there's a way to find the fractions in-between two successive approximants but I don't recall off the top of my head.
