"It may come as a surprise that terminating decimal fractions can have
repeating expansions in binary. It is for this reason that many are
surprised to discover that 0.1 + ... + 0.1, (10 additions) differs from
1 in floating point arithmetic. In fact, the only binary fractions with
terminating expansions are of the form of an integer divided by a power
of 2, which 1/10 is not."
