Question Number Confusion

Ok, I've been doing alot of research into genetics, I plan on becoming a python breeder after college...

And I just found, on this site mostly, that everyone says things like "I have 2.3 corn snakes, 2.0 ball pythons, 0.1 milk snakes, etc."

I feel kind of juvenile and uneducated by asking. But hey, no questions no answers right? So...What do the numbers mean?

Thank you in advance,

i believe the first number is the amount of males you have, second is females and 3rd is unsexed
1.1.1 is 1 male, 1 female and 1 unsexed
oh yes! i may be wierd... but this wierdo comes with new, improved Live Journal action!

Just remember that Males ALWAYS come first and you should be fine LOL
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.

This is how I put it simply... Male.Female.Unsexed Whatever number you have in place of those is how many of each sex you have of that herptile.
Who are you callin' a freak?!
