The gamma and Rayleigh distributions are two of the most applied distributions in engineering. Motivated by engineering issues, the exact distribution of the quotient $X/Y$ is derived when $X$ and $Y$ are independent gamma and Rayleigh random variables. Tabulations of the associated percentage points and a computer program for generating them are also given.
