#### What happens when n is a fraction?

Here is the graph of

Here, there are 2 sets of 3 leaf roses. The
petals are not "nested," as they are with different
values of **b**, they intersect.

This is the graph of

Here, we see a similar result. There are 2
sets of 5 leaf roses.

Again, we see a similar result. When **n**
is (5/3) we get 3 sets of "**n** leaf roses."

So, when **n** = **a/b**, **a** dictates
the number of petals to the rose, the usual function of n, and
**b** dictates how many roses, or sets of petals, there will
be.
