“People who say fractions are better than decimals are missing the point”

"People who say fractions are better than decimals are missing the point” is a math pun that was posted on Twitter by Jack McFadden on July 24, 2015. “If you are converting decimals to fractions, you are missing the point” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on January 25, 2018. “My friend refuses to believe that working with decimals is easier than working with fractions. He is missing the point” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on September 14, 2018.

The missing “point” is the decimal point.

If you are always converting decimals to fractions,
you are missing the point.

True. But if you try to move the denominator into the numerator, you’ve crossed the line.
