J We show the following properties of this tree. 1. The numerator and denominator at each vertex are relatively prime. This is certainly true at the top vertex. Otherwise, suppose r/s is a vertex on the highest possible level of the tree for which this is false. If r/s is a left child, then its parent is r/(s − r), which would clearly also not be a reduced fraction, and would be on a higher level, a contradiction. If r/s is a right child, then its parent is (r − s)/s, which leads to the same contradiction.
