Default 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?

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.

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.

Depends on the size of your decimal point.

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
