請問英文中對分數的講法

我想知道英文中,對分數的唸法

如:1/101、13/18739、157937/157938……等等的

請問英文中對這些分數有什麼唸法呢?

我知道一些簡單的,像1/3是one third,1/99是one ninety ninth,23/100是twenty three percent,可是科學的世界裡,不可能用這些簡單的分數就解決一切難題,如果剛好會用到那些複雜的分數,而且當時的情況又要說英文的話,那該怎麼辦呢?

已更新項目:

原來是這樣,謝謝兩位大大的解答

兩位大大這麼一說,我好像有印象,我看Mythbusters的節目的時候,有時候他們提到分數的時候,也會說xxx over ooo

而且不要說是英文了,就算是中文,有時候一些比較沒那麼漂亮的數字也是用寫的比較方便……

    Besides the 3 convenient ways you have mentioned, there are two other common ways:

    1/101 ==> one over one hundred and one (or one over one o one)

    ==> one divided by one hundred and one ( one divided by

    one o one)

    13/18739

    ==> thirteen over eighteen thousand seven hundred thirty nine

    (or thirteen over eighteen seven thirty-nine)

    ==> thirteen divided by eighteen thousand seven hundred thirty nine

    ( or thirteen divided by eighteen seven thirty nine)

    In real life, it is seldom to have such a complicated number. In scientific communication, people would rather WRITE IT DOWN, instead of verbal expression to avoid confusion.

    Percentage and decimal will always be in a truncated form, never be precise. Especially, in scientific communication, fractional expression is always preferable, unless otherwise specified.

    converting to percentage and decimal can never be precise, because it is always in a truncated form. In scientific communication, it is always preferable to use fraction, unless otherwise specified (like up to which decimal).

    I thought my first supplemental answer was lost, but it didn't ! Sorry for double posting.

    I tried to write with very easy English, so if you can patiently read it, you shall have NO trouble to understand it. The comment you have made indicated that you did understand my saying !!!
