If I have to choose, I will choose B. However, I would actually say ‘thirteen forty-sevenths’.

Hi Mister Micawber,

Can I say [i]thirteen over forty-seven /i.

Which of the following is correct?

You can use:

two fifty-five over one forty-three.
two hundred (and) fifty-five over one hundred (and) forty-three.
two hundred (and)fifty-five one hundred (and) forty-thirds.
two hundred (and) fifty-five divided by one hundred (and) forty-three.

Dear Mister Micawber,

For 255/143, can I say:

Two hundred and fifty-five over one four three.

For 13/300, can I say:

Thirteen over three o o.

For 31/144, can I say:

Thirty -one over one four four.

Thanks

Not if you expect instant comprehension. It sounds like you are giving telephone numbers or street addresses.

Dear teacher,

Yes, but now, I’m not at home. So that you don’t spend much time, please write only: a. No, b. yes…

Thanks

PS: As from next month, I’m always welcome to any phone call from 21pm to 24pm (hours in VNam). However, I don’t speak English well because my first foreign language is French. Many thanks.

No, I mean your numbers don’t sound like fractions.

three o o
one four three
one four four

These sound like addresses or phone numbers.
.

Sorry Sir,

Yes, that sounds like a phone number, but if I don’t follow the normal grammar rule, if I say like that, it’s correct in grammar?

thanks

Yes, I can see nothing wrong with the grammar of ‘three o o’.
