Hi all,

A quick question.

This is expected?

raku -e 'say 9 ** (1/3)'
2.080083823051904


Why do I'm asking this?
I know about the computational floating problem and I also know that the
Raku deal with rational whenever it is possible and store numbers as
expressions (actually I don't know if there are more details). That's why
0.2 + 0.1 == 0.3 in Raku returns True whilst in other languages like
Python, Perl5, and Ruby return False.

Then, I was just playing around and I'd like to check if it is expected.

Thanks
