Apply TodayThis Challenge is derived from GJam 2014 China Rational Number Tree.

The Goal is to determine the tree node if given [P,Q] or provide the [P,Q] if given a node. This is the Large Challenge with a Max of 64 Tree levels. Processing of uint64 size data requires extra care.

Consider an infinite complete binary tree where the root node is 1/1 and the left and right children of node P/Q are P/(P+Q) and (P+Q)/Q, respectively.

The Tree looks like:

1/1 ______|______ | | 1/2 2/1 ___|___ ___|___ | | | | 1/3 3/2 2/3 3/1

The nodes are 1/1, 1/2, 2/1, 1/3, 3/2, 2/3, 3/1,...

**Input:** [N] or [P,Q] where N is a uint64 integer node or [P,Q] (double) are terms of a Node

**Output:** [P,Q](double) or [N](uint64) depends on Input type

**Examples:**

[Input] [Output] [2] [1 2] [1 2] [2] [5] [3 2] [3 2] [5]

**Contest Performance:** Best Delta Time of 14 minutes with only 368 able to process the large data set in less than 3 hours.

**Notes:**

1) Matlab has issues with uint64 for dec2bin and matrix multiplies.

2) Example of uint64 read is provided in test suite comments

3) Bitshift and bitget work on uint64
