In case you would like the challenge of refreshing or re-learning some algebra, here's a quick refresher course. First off, the bottom of a fraction ("denominator") tells how many pieces something has been divided into (example: 1/16" tells us that we're talking about one part (the "1"... aka "numerator") of an inch that is split into 16 total parts).

With that in mind, if you divide 16 into 1, you'll get .0625. So 1/16" is equal to .0625 of an inch. Want to know the decimal equivalent of 5/16"? Multiply five times .0625 and you'll have the answer (.3125 for those who are playing along). Hopefully it's simple once you get the hang of it.

Here are some examples of the most common fractions and the link we promised to boot.

1/64" = 1" divided by 64 = .015625"

1/32" = 1" divided by 32 = .03125"

1/16" = 1" divided by 16 = .0625"

1/8" = 1" divided by 8 = .125"

1/4" = 1" divided by 4 = .25"

1/2" = 1" divided by 2 = .5"
