Hi,

how is

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

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

One... one-hundred-twenty-fifths. (I always say it with the denominator in the plural, even there is only one. Not sure if that's a quirk or if others do it that way too.)

Sometimes you even say something like "That's one over one-twenty-five" for clarity.

BarbaraPAWhat about "one...hundred twenty fifths"? Taking out the other "one", it wouldn't change the meaning, would it? (would it?, is it would it?)

Thanks in advance!:D

PuccaI think it's not "fifths". For example it's "one fifth" and not "one fifths", but since you are a writer and not a mathematician, you have a good reason to be excused.

Kooyeen1/100- one hundredth, not "one one-hundredth"so...

1/125- is this"one one-hundred-twenty-fifth"or just"one hundred-twenty-fifth"?3/125- is this"three one-hundred-twenty-fifths"or just"three hundred-twenty-fifths"?I'm trying to find something on the net, but it's difficult, fractions are always written in figures.

Kooyeen(Unless you leave a HUGE pause. Three hundred-twenty-fifths. And even then, it's leaving room for ambiguity.)

Yes, Kooyeen, I know there is only one in 1/125, which is why I said it was a quirk and not the correct way, but thanks for the math lecture just the same.

BarbaraPAOr 100/25.

khoffBarbaraPABut anyway it seems I should read 1/100 as

"one hundredth"and 2/100 as"two hundredths"instead of"one one-hundredth"and"two one-hundredth", but 1/125 as"one one-hundredth-twenty-fifth"... Isn't it weird?Thank you for your help, and if anyone else feel like commenting, I'll appreciate their opinions.
