You may use this setup as an _illustration_ of the numbers 3 and 1/3, but it sure as hell ain't the numbers 3 and 1/3 _themselves_. Look at it is this way: To my left I have 3 slices of bread on a plate. To my right I have 3 apples on another plate. Are you going to tell me that the plates contain the same thing? Or are you trying to tell me that 3 ain't necessarily equal to 3? Of course not, right?
