    Q-exact

    A library to make exact calculations with rational numbers without rounding errors.

    Compare this:

    1 / 49 * 49 ▶ 0.9999999999999999

    with this:

    Q(1).over(49).times(49) ▶ 1

    Q-exact overcomes some of the classic limitations of floating-point arithmetic by requiring that all results be expressed exactly, or not at all. Rational numbers in Q-exact are stored as products of prime factors. For example, -75/28 is represented as -2-2⋅3⋅52⋅7-1. There is no way to represent irrational numbers, Infinity or NaN.

    See the Q Class Reference for further informations.
