# What is the measurement in tape measure?

**tape measure**is a portable

**measurement**device used to quantify the size of an object or the distance between objects. The

**tape**is marked along the

**tape**edge in inches and fractional inches, typically in quarter-, eight-, sixteenth-inch increments.

Similarly, it is asked, what is CM on a tape measure?

The small, tight, narrow lines between **centimeter** markings represent millimeters (or one-tenth-**centimeters**). There are ten millimeters in a **centimeter** (and, thus, one thousand in a meter.) If your **measuring tape** doesn't have 0.5 **centimeter** markings, the fifth millimeter after each **centimeter** marks the 0.5 **centimeter**.

Similarly, what is 1/8 on a tape measure? The **1/8**-inch mark is located between any two 1/4-inch marks. Most work tends to stop at this point, though in some cases you will need to **measure** down to the 1/16-inch mark. The 1/16-inch mark is the absolute shortest line on the **tape measure**.

Also, what comes after 7 8 on a tape measure?

As an example, the image below shows a length that **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.

What is half of 1/3 8 on a tape measure?

**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.
