With complex fractions, one usually speaks of them as a division problem:

twenty-three point five over forty-five point seven.

The colon means a ratio and is said "is to" sixty-seven point five.

So, if not complex fractions for example 3/5 ......we use cardinal and ordinal number ( it's read three fifth ), is it?
