Yup. Thank you. This now reads:

Regarding str() and repr() behaviour, repr() will be either
''rational(num)'' if the denominator is one, or ''rational(num,
denom)'' if the denominator is not one. str() will be either ''num''
if the denominator is one, or ''(num / denom)'' if the denominator is
not one.

Is that acceptable?
