How is it possible that I can write (for example) 1/3 and be 100% accurate while I couldn't write the same number in decimals being just as accurate?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It has to do with our choice of system. But what is it exactly? I don't seem to grasp it or isn't there anything to grasp?
