```Thanks, but Rationalize works in the manner you executed it; however, it
does not work like this...

In[216]:= nuChop[t_] = Rationalize[t];
A = {{-1.2, 1.5}, {-2.3, 1.2}};
eigval1 = Eigenvalues[A][[1]]
nuChop[eigval1]

Out[218]= 2.7755576*10^-17 + 1.4177447 I

Out[219]= 2.7755576*10^-17 + 1.4177447 I
