Note that you are trying to prove that *AB and *CD are exactly equal to
6.111111e-2, which is always false! So it's a good thing you were not
able to prove it. Get rid of the \abs expressions.

The following option might help you:

    frama-c -jessie -jessie-why-opt=--fast-wp <file.c>

VCs won't get simpler and more easily provable, but at least there
should be less of them.
