In the question, it states that the gcd of p and q is 1, but in the solution it is not simplified. Wut?

Hi Harris,

We just want the final solution to be simplified. The expression in the problem should be equal to $\dfrac{323}{60}$. Unless we're missing something, this fraction is already simplified, so $P=323$ and $Q = 60$. Let me know if I'm not understanding your question correctly!
