One Inch. The basic unit of measurement for dollhouses

This is the inch symbol "

*

One half inch (1/2")

There are two halfs in one inch (1/2 + 1/2 = 1)

Find the measurement that woould be 3 1/2" (three and one half inches)

*

One quarter inch (1/4")

There are four quarters in one inch (1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 1") There are two quarters in one half inch (1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2)

See 3 3/4"? (three and three quarters")... find 3 1/4"

*

Eighths of an inch (1/8") There are eight of them between each inch mark.

Notice that the 1/4" marks (2 eighths) and the 1/2" marks (4 eighths) are longer, but they are still counted when counting the spaces for eighths

See 3 5/8"? (three and five eighths)... find 4 3/8"

*

Sixteenths of an inch. There are sixteen of them between each mark 16/16 = one inch

Again notice that you count all of the longer marks.


You are watching: Half of 1/4 inch

Each step of the way, you count the marks for that fraction and the longer marks, but not the shorter marks

Where is 3 15/16?

*

Thirtyseconds of an inch - now that"s small, but some rulers show them

Each 1/16" mark stands for two 1/32" so 7/32 is the same together three and one half 1/16" spaces (2 + 2 + 2 + 1)

A measurement of 19/32 would be the same as nine and one half 1/16" spaces which is the same as 1/2" + 1/16" + half of 1/16"... can you find it?
