Best Answer

Refer to the scale.

To convert between decimal elevations and feet/inches start by taking the feet and set that aside. Then take the decimal and multiply by 12.

Example, say you have 15.38 as your elevation to convert. 15 stays as 15 ft, then multiply .38*12. You should end up with 15 ft 4.56 in. Now, take the .56 off of the 4 inches, and multiply by 16, to give you how many 16ths of an inch more than 4 inches you have. => 0.56*16=8.96. Basically, that equals 9/16 more than 4 inches.

In the end, elevation 15.38 converts to 15 ft, 4-9/16 inches.

Hope this helps.
