What is the opposite of a fraction?

I was trying to impress an Economics undergraduate by telling her I'm interested in probability theory. I told her my best ever bet was Tsonga v Federer, 8/5 (1.60) at RG. Then I asked her if she prefers fractions or decimals. But now I'm worrying if I used the correct terms. If, eg. 3/1 is a fraction, what do you call 0.33?

And do you think girls studying Economics would generally want to hook up with a guy who bets on tennis?

You should stop eating rice 6 times a day and start using drugs

I did a lot of your name as a teenager and more recently grew and ate large quantities of psilocybin mushrooms. Now I just get drunk every day on this fake jap beer (brewed from corn). I don't know if it counts as drugs.

I don't eat much rice.

But I wouldn't refer to it as an opposite. Simply an alternative presentation of the odds.

Btw are you really from Matsumoto, Nagano?

I was there earlier this year, beautiful little spot. But I spent most of my time in the onsens.

I'm not from there but I do live near Matsumoto.

And thanks for the answer, though I fear rambling on about tennis odds my have blown my chances...

Economics undergraduates are only impressed by what's in your pants. Nothing else.

Hahaha. Funny thread. So what did you say was 3/1, decimal? haha. it's not opposite in betting, though. there's also euro moneyline odds or american.

the opposite of a fraction is another fraction.

Depends on the size of your decimal point.
