    I would assume that one is a rational number while the other gets constructed and represented as a floating point number. I think you can somehow look into how Perl6 represents the values but I don't know it.

      Yes, but it's the reverse of what any sane person would expect.

        What any sane person would expect would be replies to a post that address the content of the post instead of troll on an unrelated topic.
