    Fractions are numbers that can represent part of a whole, and are composed of two parts, the numerator and the denominator, and they are found in our everyday life when we need to describe the amount of something we want, or when we need to divide something equally. They are normally used to describe the amount of something rather than percentage because it is shorter and more easily spoken. Chefs and bakers use fractions often because it is easily understood and are shorter to write than quarter, 0.25, 25% etc.
