 Although Equation 2.45 looks simple, it involves more arithmetic operations as compared to Equations 2.36 and 2.38.
 2001, Michael L. Overton, Numerical Computing with IEEE Floating Point Arithmetic, SIAM, page 31:
 A key feature of the IEEE standard is that it requires correctly rounded operations, specifically:
• correctly rounded arithmetic operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide);
• correctly rounded remainder and square root operations;
• correctly rounded format conversions.
