It is a fraction but it can be made smaller

19/12 = 1 7/12

1 7/12 is generally perceived as more complicated than 19/12. The general idea is to reduce the number of calculations done, for 1 7/12 you do two (division and addition) for 19/12 you do one (division.

What part of that says they want to find a decimal?

We have dealt with the decimal part. Haven't we?
