Arbitrary-precision rational numbers, represented as a ratio of two Integer values. A rational number may be constructed using the % operator.

approxRational, applied to two real fractional numbers x and epsilon, returns the simplest rational number within epsilon of x. A rational number y is said to be *simpler* than another y' if
* abs (numerator y) <= abs (numerator y'), and
* denominator y <= denominator y'.
Any real interval contains a unique simplest rational; in particular, note that 0/1 is the simplest rational of all.
