If the fraction $\dfrac{a}{b}$ is greater than $\dfrac{31}{17}$ in the least amount while $b<17$, find $\dfrac{a}{b}$.

Is it enough to find the successor term of $\frac{14}{17}$ in fairy sequence $f_{17}$?

By the definition of Farey sequence, yes. But that too involves manual search for a primitive solution of a linear diophantine equation.

I got $\frac{11}{6}$. Is it the answer?

$\frac {11}{6} $ is the answer , I had found it by trial and error method .

I used Continued Fraction. And got $\frac{11}{6}$. Is it one from the right ways?
