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.

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.
