Every number on a measuring tape has units. But "three eighths" has none.

It's just a naked number. So, technically, "three eighths" is nowhere on a

measuring tape.

If 'three eighths' had a unit, then here are a few of the places where it

could be, depending on what unit it has:

three eighths inch . . .

3/8 of the distance from the beginning of the tape to the mark for 1 inch

three eighths foot . . .

midway between the mark for 4-inches and the mark for 5-inches

three eighths yard . . .

midway between the mark for 13 inches and the mark for 14 inches

three eighths centimeter . . .

3/8 of the distance from the beginning of the tape to the mark for 1 centimeter, or

3/4 of the distance from the little tiny mark for 3 millimeters to the little tiny mark for 4 millimeters

three eighths meter . . .

midway between the mark for 37 centimeters and the mark for 38 centimeters
