Bzzt. Next contestant.
The correct answer was 29969999/1000000.

There might be, but how would they be less "clever" than simple and
well-proven fraction mathematics ?

Maybe we will. I'm not convinced anymore we do though since there
doesn't seem to be a codec project anymore that uses floats over
fractions for framerate. Unless you know one ?

What would it represent, what practical use would it have, and how would
it deal with trying to display 13.2948 by 48.345891 pixels ? Seems like
a non-issue to me.
