Hi,
how is 1/125 read? I think...

1/250 - should be "one two-hundred-fiftieth"
1/125 - so this should be "one one-hundred-twenty-fifth"

But I'm not completely sure of that "one one"... Thank you Emotion: smile

2/100 as "two hundredths"

Again, your listener could be confused, and think he's hearing x/200. You're likely to get "how many two-hundreths?" or "did you say one two-hundreth?" in response.

Hi GG,
no, I don't think so. Reading 2/100 as "two hundredths" is the standard way to read it, as far as I know. Don't you read it that way? And 1/200 would be "one two-hundredth".
I checked again on the net, but it is impossible to find something about complex fractions. Anyway, it seems "one one-hundred twenty-fifth", repeating the one, is found on the net and it seems the correct and common way to read 1/125.

Hi guys,

I'd probably read 2/100 as "two one-hundredths".
