    What does the fraction mean in an apartment rental listing?

    Example: "$750 / 3br - 5 1/2 for rent" When browsing craigslist in my home city of Vancouver, I never see people do this, but when browsing listings for Montreal, most of them have fractions on the end like that. Sometimes it is typed as a decimal (5.5, 2.5, etc). I've determined that it is not describing the number of bedrooms or bathrooms. What does this number mean?

    i'ts the number of room in the appartement. The bathroom is the .5 so example (1bedroom,living room,kitchen and bathroom) we will say a 3.5 for the same type with 2 bedroom it's a 4.5 and the 3 bedroom is the 5 1/2

    • I would guess that means a half of a room, like maybe it is a sitting room and not a full bedroom. I am not in Canada and I dont know for sure. Very interesting. I read the other answer and it is very odd. When I lived in Manhattan a 3-room apartment was 1-bedroom, living room and the bathroom was one room. You should post this in Vancouver in Travel. Thats is what I do for this type of question
