7 8 On A Tape Measure

It’s a little less than 1/2 an inch, or about a 1/2 inch if you don’t care much for being precise. Otherwise, you simply take half by multiplying 7/8 * 1/2 = 7/16. Good luck!

1/2

7/16

one half of 7/8 = 7/16 or 1/16th less than 1/2 inch.

Lets make it simple. 7 is the Numerator and 8 is the Denominator, but you don’t have to remember this. To figure what is half of the fraction double the bottom number. Good Luck

7/16, same as anywhere else.
You tape measure might not be marked in ’16 Th.s’, so fudge it to 3 1/2 eighths.

7/16 of an inch.
