Problem
A lattice point in an -coordinate system is any point where both and are integers. The graph of passes through no lattice point with for all such that . What is the maximum possible value of ?
Solution
We see that for the graph of to not pass through any lattice points its denominator must be greater the than 100. We see that the nearest fraction bigger than that does not have its denominator over 100 is 50/99. :D
