The question can be rewritten as how many eighths are in a quarter. Or in other words, what is (1/4)/(1/8). The way to divide by a fraction is to multiply by its denominator then divide by it's numerator. In this case, multiplying 1/4 by 8 then dividing by 1 gives us 8/4. This can be simplified to 2.

Thus there are 2 eighths of an inch in a quarter inch.
