How do I store the rational number after performing arithmetic in C++?

I have to write a code for rational number to perform an arithmetic operation in C++. Data members should store in reduced format, i.e., the fraction 2/4 should store as 1 in numerator and 2 in denominator. My code is doing all arithmetic operations, but I don't know how to store the rational number after performing the arithmetic operations. in reduced format. Please help.

I'd store the numerator and denominator is separate int variables.
