Fraction can be improper fractions or a proper fractions!

improper fractions are fractions where p>q; e.g 7/5, 8/13, or even 4/1;

proper fractions are fractions where p<q; (Which we generally assume are the only fractions)!

Does it help?

What I think is that the value of n could be sqrt (2), value of which is 1.414, and therefore p/q can be represented in this form: 1414/1000=707/500; both integers. Isn't this correct?

Welcome to GMAT Club.

$$\sqrt{2}$$ is an irrational number: 1.414213562373095048801688724209698078569671875376948073176679... it goes on forever. 1.414 is only approximate value of the square root of 2. Thus $$\frac{\sqrt{2}}{1000}$$ does not equal to 1414/1000.

Check here the following post for complete solution: m04-q-72229.html#p880483

Hope it helps.
