Measuring the size of objects and distances involves fractions. Sometimes a fraction needs to be changed into a decimal. Carpenters may use a calculator to convert from one form to the other, or they may use a conversion table.
When converting a mixed number, such as 4 5/64, keep the whole number (4) and convert the fraction (5/64). Combine the whole number and decimal to read as one number.
