For instance, 13/32 is 1/32 less than 14/32 or 7/16, so we say "7/16 minus" and

**11/32**is 1/32 more than 10/32 or 5/16, so we say "5/16 plus". This is a fast way of**reading**the**tape measure**on the job when taking a**measurement**of something to cut it to fit.

Simply so, what is 19 32 on a tape measure?

Realize that **19/32**” is between 18/32” and 20/32”. 18/32” reduces to 9/16” and 20/32” reduces to 5/8”, therefore **19/32**” is the 1/32 mark between 9/16” and 5/8”.

**goes from**the inch mark to an unlabeled marking. We know it's more than 3/4 of an inch and less than one full inch. The marking is half way between 3/4 (6/8) and

**7/8**. Therefore, the marking is half of 1/8, or 1/16.

Furthermore, what is 4/5 on a tape measure?

Reading a **Tape Measure** Add the number next to the large tick with the fraction to get the **measurement**. eg. if your 5 ticks past the number 4 tick then the **measurement** is **4 ^{5}**⁄

_{16}“.

**Half** of the number is nothing but dividing that number into two equal parts. So to calculate **half** of a number simply divide the number by 2 whether the given number is whole number or a fraction. **Half** of **3/8** = ((**3/8**)/2)=> (**3/8**)*(**1**/2)=3/16.
