No they aren't. You divide things up and have to know what the amount is; but when you cannot represent them with a decimal point, you need to use them.

For instance 1/3 = 0.333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333

We have to work with math in life all of time; but don't be afraid to understand it, it is not as difficult as you think.

Lets say I have $100. I give you 2/3. Wouldn't you want to know how much you are getting? :)

But darling, if it weren't for fractions, your IQ would be zero. With fractions we can at least give you credit for having an IQ of one-half.
