What is the measurement in tape measure?
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.
