Things that make you go hmm: Triple or Treble?

4 01 2013

I’m not a linguist by any means, by qualification I’m a mathematician!
But I’ve been pondering this question:

What’s the difference/is there a difference between “Triple” and “Treble”?

Obviously “treble” can be used in situations where triple can’t, in reference to music, but I think this really is a different word (like “row” and “row” are totally different words). But with the implication of the number three, is there actually a difference between “treble” or “triple”?!
