[rspec-users] any tricks re using " eql(5.5)", but where 5.5 is a decimal not float?

My rails migrations / mysql database uses Decimal and I've noticed in
my rspec when I do a "...should eql(5.5)" that they're failing as the
expected result here is a float not a decimal.  For example see
extract below:

     expected 6.5, got #<BigDecimal:23d8284,'0.65E1',8(8)> (using .eql?)

What's the best way of addressing this?  Is there trick regarding the
easiest way to address this?
