# What's in between "single" and "double"?

I'm trying to think of a word that basically communicates something in between a single and a double.

Is there such a thing as half of a tuple?

How would you communicate something that is in between a single and a double?

• You're not, but you kinda are... If you tied two ropes together with a double overhand, you're essentially left with a knot with four loops. A single overhand would be two loops. The knot I'm tying has three loops... I'm tying a single with one strand, then a double with the other, but in "knot math" that does not add up to a triple, it's one single less that a double... but not a single... I need help.

• @tchrist, this isn't a duplicate, that question is about Ordinal Numbers, this one is about Tuples. Commented Sep 2, 2015 at 15:45
