While solving GMAT problems involving age, can we assume age to always be an integer? What is GMAT's stance on this issue?

I would suggest not to assume ages as integers. I have seen few problems involving ages such 10 years 6 months which later required to be used as 10.5 in equations. Treat the age like a time entity (e.g. 1.5 hour is 1 hour 30 mins).
