No they would not because they are not fucking imbecilles using decimals like you, they would say 3/8 revolution.
Because they probably learned howto find the greatest common factor in school. They would better leave your decimals out of it, because they understand the drawbacks.

By the way what was 1/11 revolution in degrees? It may not represent a big problem on it's own but when used in calculations using decimals you will start to lose digits.
