RE: Last post wins.
We are arguing over whether it's better to express a rational number, which, when simplified as a fraction, has a denominator which can be expressed in the form 2^m * 5^n, as a fraction or as a decimal.

RE: Last post wins.
In other words, the topic of discussion is not whether decimals themselves are better than fractions, whether numbers are better expressed as fractions or decimals.

RE: Last post wins.
Oh my goodness. You guys are still talking about that?
Expressing numbers as fractions is more appropriate in pure math, where you are actually dealing with precise numbers. Expressing numbers with decimals is more appropriate when you are performing scientific experiments, where you literally can't know the precise numbers on account of measurement error and therefore have to approximate. The end.

Pure math vs. science then!
I'm for pure math RIP, these forums Lost the game LegacyofFive the goat

RE: Last post wins.
Pure math is a science.

RE: Last post wins.
Let me revise that. Pure math vs physical sciences.
