Don't write 0.3333333333333333333..., write (1/3)!

Combinations of constants & operators are evaluated during code
generation (as far as possible).  That means writing 0.3333333333333333
results in exactly the same code as writing (1/3) - there's no extra
division at runtime.

The same holds for, say, 1.4142135623730951 and 2^0.5 or even 2^(1/2)
and so on and so on...

No need to manually calculate things & obscure intentions.
