There are eight eighths in one inch. Therefore, in half an inch, there would be four eighths.

62.5 hundredths = five eighths.

8 eighths of an inch equal one inch. So 2 inches contain 16 eighths of an inch. Half of eight is four, so half an inch contains four eighths of an inch. 16 + 4 = 20 eighths of an inch.

1/2 of an inch contains 4 Eighths (1/8) of an inch

There are 25.4 millimetres in an inch. Therefore, five eighths of an inch is equal to 5/8 x 25.4 = 15.875 millimetres.

one and five eighths is equal to thirteen eighths. Half of this is thirteen sixteenths which can not be simplified further. 1 5/8 = 13/8 13/8 * 1/2 = 13/16

5/8 x 240 = 150 Therefore, five eighths of an inch would represent 150 miles.

An inch is 2.54 centinters, so 5/8 inch = 2.54 X .625 = 1.59 centimeters.

go to the 7 then count 6 of the little lines. 6/16ths Here is an alternate method that will work if your ruler happens not to mark 16ths. Make sure that you are using a ruler that measures inches and feet. A stick that measures in the metric system will not work well. 7 3/8 will be between the 7 inch and the 8 inch points. The "eighths" part means that you are looking for the marks that divide that inch into eight equal lengths. There will be 3 such marks or lines in between the 7 and the half inch mark which you should be able to find with no trouble. There are three more 'eighths' marks between the half inch mark and the 8. The "3" part means that you start at the 7 point on the ruler and count three of the marks that divide the inch into eighths. You will also see (or you are making an error of some kind) that if you count 4 eighths from the 7 point, you will be exactly at the half inch mark between the 7 and the 8. That only makes sense; 4 eighths is half of 8 eighths. And 8 eighths is one full unit-- in this case, one full inch.

5/8 * 2 = 5/4 = 1.25 inches.
