This is due to the fact that floats are approximate. The results follow the IEEE standard. Try it in Javascript, you'll get the same result.

Bug #6274: Float addition incorrect

Adding decimals with repeating values appears to lead to an error in returned value.

For example if you inspect: 
10 + 1.0 / 3.0
or 
33 + 1.0 / 3.0

the values are not what they should be. You will need to test this in IRB.
