A math teacher welcomed a new French exchange student into her class and then started teaching a lesson on fractions.

The French exchange student raised his hand and said, "Excuse me Madam, but I don't know how to say fractions. How do you say those?"

"Easy," said the teacher, "you just say the top number and then the bottom number is read as an ordinal number. For example, 2/3 is 'two-thirds', 3/4 is 'three...

Is it true that the inventor of fractions was...

...Louis the 1/16th?

I don't see why some people use fractions instead of decimals

It's pointless, but anyway you gotta draw the line somewhere or else people will think you're being irrational. But that's beside the point

I don’t understand why people use fractions instead of decimals.

It’s pointless

Having trouble understanding top heavy fractions?

Our helpline is open 24/7

I just realized my wife left me because of my obsession with simplifying fractions.

Oh well, hindsight is 1.

Little Johnny decided to prepare ahead of the next day's lesson on fractions,

so he approached his father. His partly sober dad took his time to help Johnny using all the illustrations he could lay his hand upon.

The next day, after noticing how bright and happily Johnny appeared, the teacher tried to direct some questions to him.

Teacher: "What's 1/8 + 1/8?"...

My friend refuses to believe that working with decimals is easier than working with fractions.

He is missing the point.

9 out of 8 americans are bad at fractions

Seriously, it's true.

Everyone likes to laugh at other people's inability with numbers. However, 45% of people consider themselves bad at math, every twentieth member of the population hates decimals, 1 out of 5 people can't do mental arithmetic and 3/10 can't do fractions without a calculator.

Yet only one in a hundred find this funny.

My math teacher keeps telling me to simplify my fractions

I do it 48/14

Man: Judge, I want to contest 80% of my parking tickets.

Judge: Repeat infractions?

Man: Ok. I want to contest 4/5 of my parking tickets.

My math teacher hates mixed fractions

I'm guessing that's why what she teaches is improper.

I was cooking last night and made a joke about being able to figure out the fractions in my head without cutting one of my fingers off. No one laughed.

Guess I wasn’t appealing to the lowest common denominator.

Five out of four people admit they're bad at fractions.

If you don't get it and wonder where the punchline is, it's you.

Do you know who created fractions?

I think it was Henry the 1/8.

I recently had a heated debate with a mathematician about fractions

It's fair to say that our opinions were divided

For some reason, my friend is afraid of fractions.

It's a completely irrational fear.

A 2007 study showed that for high school students graduating in the US, 4/3 did not know how to properly use fractions.

It might be an outdated study though.

I really hate arguments about fractions.

They're divisive.

A man goes on a date

Friend: 'How did your date go?'

Man: 'I talked too much about my obsession with simplifying fractions'

Friend: 'That wasn't a very good idea'

Man: 'Yeah, well hindsight is 1'

I celebrate 4/20 on January 5th...

Because I know how to reduce fractions unlike the rest of you morons.

A math joke my teacher told me on Friday

A: I don't understand why people use fractions, they are pointless.
B: I mean... I like them, but you gotta know where to draw the line or people will think that you're irrational.
A: I still don't see the point I using them.

(Short dad joke)

A study shows that 5/4 people admit their bad at fractions.

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

Having sex is like you're doing fractions

it is improper for the larger one to be on top
