Student or Learner
I found this phrase "eight-point-three days" in the book and I don't know what does it mean. Should I understand it as "few days"? I'd appreciate help :)
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Perhaps Caroline is asking about its literal meaning, which is "a total of eight days and three tenths of a day".
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
What is the context? What sort of book is it?
Well, I should have put the whole sentence here in the first place, but I forgot. Here it is:
"So, anyway, it would't be fair to start something with Josh when it would just crash and burn in approximately eight-point-three days or four dates, whitchever came first"
Should I understand it as not whole nine days? Something like "by the end of ninth day"?
Thank You for all the replies and clearing this up for me :)
