    It is a fraction but it can be made smaller

    19/12 = 1 7/12

    Well yeah, but again.. it isn't hard to put that on a calculator.

    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.
