Re: sitework conversions tenths,hundreths to inches
Try this convertor.
http://www.onlineconversion.com/auto_convert.pl You just type what you want to convert. For example, type in: Convert 10 inches to centimeters and it will return: 10 inches = 25.4 centimeters I never seem to remember it, but I think that is the one you need for your conversions. The easiest way to think of decimals is 0.10 is like 1/10 0.01 is like 1/100 hope this was of some help.

If we're dealing with tenths and hundredths of feet, just multiply by twelve.

Thanks for the help, Leopold you were correct multiply by 12
Hopefully this will help others. 0.01=.12=1/8 inch 0.02=.24=1/4 0.03=.36=3/8 0.04=.48=1/2 0.05=.60=5/8 0.06=.72=3/4 0.07=.84=13/16 0.08=.96=15/16 0.09=1.08=1 1/16 Thanks Harry

tenths of a foot to inches
.1 = 13/16" .2 = 23/8" .3 = 35/8" .4 = 413/16" .5 = 6" .6 = 73/16" .7 = 83/8" .8 = 95/8" .9 = 1013/16"

Re: sitework conversions tenths,hundreths to inches
An inch is .083 of a foot. Or Eighty three thousandths. So you would do 6" times .083 which is .498. Pretty close to half a foot. Or to convert 5 tenths to inches you would take .5 divided by .083 which is 6.0240963855421686746987951807229. If you are talking about international survey foot.

12" = 1' exactly, so 1" = 1/12 ft, or 0.08333..... a continuing decimal (to infinity). 0.5 ft = 6 inches, exactly.

Re: sitework conversions tenths,hundreths to inches
I tried to post a link to a chart but the forum wont let me, so I hope this helps. In FF, elevations are considered above sea level. The feet are on left of decimal, inches on the right of decimal thus an elevation of 600.63 = 600' 7 5/8" above sea level. Now this elevation or any elevation can be called your benchmark and called 00.0 , using 0.02 above this mark would be called +0.02 and below this mark would be 0.02 , or +1/4" or 1/4"
For shooting grades a close rule of thumb is 1/8 of an inch = 0.01 so 0.02 = 1/4 and there's 8 of them in an inch. Now 12 inches in a foot must be divided into 10 parts so if 12"= 1'.00 then 6"= 0.50 or 1/2 a foot (2x6=12) and 3"= .25 or 1/4 of a foot (3x4=12) It's not rocket science it's construction if it varies slightly by an 8th or so, oh well, close enough. Of course, I'm thinking concrete and gradeing Last edited by woodbutcher; 12112008 at 08:15 AM.
