Sloop vs. Fractional Sloop vs. Cutter

I hope this isn''t a dumb question ... but I need to ask;

If one doesn''t have a fractional rig sloop, why not just fly a smaller headsail to reduce workload?

Also another question; exactly how does a fractional rig headsail offer more power than a masthead rigged headsail?
