    one-and-a-third homes

    Hello,

    What does it mean when a real estate agent said he sold one-and-a-third homes his first year and made a couple of thousand dollars. I did not understand how someone could sell 1 and 1/3 houses. Please help.

    Thank you,

    Beeja

    Neither do I. If that's all he sold and made in his first year he's in the wrong job.

    Where did you read this?

    He sold one by himself, and one with two other salespeople. Or the three of them put equal effort in selling 4 homes.

    The original reads "I sold one and a third homes". Why did you change it?

    I didn't change it.That's what I saw in print. See attached photo I just found the similar content on the internet so I posted the link for your information. Next time I'd rather take a snapshot.

    Re: one-and-a-third homes

    In the first link you posted, the words were written as 'one and a third'. In the second. they were written as 'one-and-a-third'. I find the first of these natural, the second not.

    You wrote '1 and 1/3', which is incorrect.

    How do you write one and a third in number? Is 1 1/3 correct but 1 and 1/3 not correct? I mean in general.
