# Understanding fractions

If you don't understand fractions, you won't be even 1/3 educated. Glasses will seem half empty rather than half full. You'll be lucky to not be duped into some type of shady real-estate scheme or putting far too many eggs in your cake batter. Good thing this tutorial is here. You'll see that fractions allow us to view the world in entirely new ways. You'll see that everything doesn't have to be a whole. You'll be able to slice and dice and then put it all back together (and if you order now, we'll throw in a spatula warmer for no extra charge).
