Why can't a fraction or a decimal be used instead of a percent?

Surely percents can always be expressed as fractions or decimals, but percents are useful for comparing values- percents are essentially fractions all of the same denominator so they are easier to compare. Example: which is bigger 9/20 or 88/200 ? which is bigger 45% or 44% ? The percent question is easier to answer even though the numbers are the same.
