YES, LCM() that's the function i was looking for...

I did not know it that function exists, probably because it's name in my
Dutch version of EXCEL is KGV()..... :-[

It's named ”MGM()” in my Swedish version (Minsta Gemensamma Multipel).
Do you know that you can easily pick another language for the graphical
user interface? You need to restart LibreOffice, and then all cell
functions are in the selected language (English would be a good choice in
this case). I usually do that when I'm about to ask or reply to questions
on this mailing lists, if I need to copy and paste cell formulas or explain
how to find a certain thing in the menues. Nobody will understand
”≈OM(ÄRTAL(LETARAD(blah;blah;blah));1;0)”, for instance.
Also, do you know that you can hit Ctrl+F2 for help when creating cell
formulas? I dialogue will pop up helping you to find what you need and you
can look through cell functions by category and more. You can also see the
results of parts of your formula, making it easier to debug a faulty
formula. I found it very helpful and there's where I found the LCM()
function (although it was called MGM when I found it).

Let me rephrase the question.... ;)

In the 'example' line we see:

56  302    28/151

The actual cell contents are:

56 302     0,18543046357615894039735099337748

Is it possible to get the values '28' and '151' as show by the

Are we allowed to use the first two numbers (56 and 302 in this case) or
only the fraction (0,185…)?
Are we allowed to create our own cell functions?
Is the maximum values 999/999 or are higher numbers allowed?
Do you want one number (28) in one cell and the other number (151) in
another cell or what?

If you can use the original numbers (56 and 302 in the example above),
here's a short example:
C1=LCM(A1;B1)/B1 ⇨ 28
D1=LCM(A1;B1)/A1 ⇨ 151

Is there an option to convert a cell with format 'Fraction' to text?


a     b       'a/b

52    297     52/297
56    302     28/151
66    311     66/311

in this third line, i want to get '28' and '151'....

i tried TEXT(C2;""), and FIND("/";C2;1),

I am assuming you are using Calc. There is no formula to do this: it
a cell formatting accessible via Format -> Cells... -> Numbers Tab,
then go to the "Fraction" category. There you can select the #
format which will do what you are looking for.

I hope this helps.

I need a formula that takes as input a percent and outputs a
that only has whole numbers.
1% -> "1/100"
0.5% -> "1/200"
1.5% -> "3/200"
