Write a simple program that:

- reads a fraction from the standard input,
- then simplifies it,
- and finally prints the simplified fraction to the standard output.

Hint: take a look at the GCD and find an algorithm to compute it.

Some examples of the program behaviour when called as ./simplify. The first line is the input, the second is output.

$ ./simplify 2 / 4 1 / 2

$ ./simplify 765 / 918 5 / 6

$ ./simplify 101 / 100 101 / 100

You can find more testing instances here. Files with the suffix `.in`

contain your input with `.out`

your desired output.

When you have your input in a file, e.g.

`1.in`

containing
768 / 918you can pass it to your program in the bash like

$ cat in.txt | ./simplify 15 / 18

Upload your solution into BRUTE as a zip archive containing only the file

`simplify.c`

with your program.
This program will have to be simply compilable by calling `clang simplify.c -o simplify`
