FilledSmallSquareDenominator[expr] gives the denominator of expr.

FilledSmallSquareDenominator picks out terms which have superficially negative exponents. Numerator picks out all remaining terms.

FilledSmallSquare An exponent is "superficially negative" if it has a negative number as a factor.

FilledSmallSquare The standard representation of rational expressions as products of powers means that you cannot simply use Part to extract denominators.

FilledSmallSquareDenominator can be used on rational numbers.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 1.4.7.
