Something like this but for go

Main idea: A lot of libraries exist that performs operations only with floats and calculations have unpredictable error. And some libraries can be "moved" to rational domain.

Example of code:

const { r } = require('./my-big-rat');

console.log(0.2 + 0.1); // 0.30000000000000004
const some = r(0.2).add(r(0.1));
console.log(some); // 3/10
console.log(some.toDecimal()); // 0.3
