    1/3 of an inch and x/16 inch. You need a common denominator, which I think is 48.


    16/48" = 1/3 inch. 1/16 inch = 3/48" .  16/3 = 5 1/3


    Looks like the answer is 1/3" = 5.33333333/16 "

    I've never seen a fraction written that way (a fraction of a fraction). P.S. Why the -25 karma?

    16 is not divisible by 3. If the question was " 1/3 of an inch = how many 15th of an inch" the answer is 5. (15/3)

    Error. I have a notebook and it is sensitive. I hope I have corrected that mistake. Would never TD an answer like yours, sorry about that, Clonge

    Bob/PKB: You're forgiven. I'm not as "sensitive" as your notebook,
