size of pouch of AMO BELT

i have great difficult to converted in centimer the f..... inches size :(

1 5/8 for exemple , why the english size not clear same of centimeter ?

1 5/8 is same of 1,62 inches ? (because 5/8 = 0,625)

why make simple when you can make difficult ? :lol

in france 2,33 centimeter is 2,33 centimeter, anybody used 2 1/3 because is not clear : is it 1/3 of 2 centimeter = 0,66 centimeter or 1/3 of 1 centimeter = 0,33 centimeter ???

sorry for my irritation but it's more difficult to make a costume and if in more it is necessary to catch a headache with these story of conversions!

thanks to help me !

(for info the electronic converter not work with this number !)

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

get a calculator and multiply those "5/8" with 100, then you have a normal number.

5/8 x 100 = 62/1/2

so 1 5/8 inch = 4.11 cm (as 1 inch is 2,54 cm) (screwed up there, thats why I edited :p )

also, check this one out:

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

thank for your answer but i dont undrestand it's impossible to multiply 5/8 with 100 or you multiply 0,625 with 100 ? i found 62,5 after what i am doing with this result ?

your link dont work if you put 1 5/8

i found 1 5/8 = 4,12 centimeter

but for 2 3/8 ?

is the map of tk409 is in a real size ?

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

no it doesn't work with a number like 1 5/8

but it does work with 1,62 (or 1.62)

the 62 you get if you multiply 5/8 on a calculator with 100.

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

woops screwed up, your right

1.62 inch = 4.11 cm

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

Can you not buy a ruler with both inches and centimeters on it? We have those in the states, makes it much easier for conversion.

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

I got one laying around here aswell... somewhere, never really use it though...

most of the time I look at the lengths in inches, then I start calculating at what percentage I need to print them or draw them etc in CM.

maybe I should start using the ruler :p

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

in france it's difficult to found the ruler in inches and i think inches was not precis (precision ?) for correct mesure. In metric systeme you are millimeter, centimeter ! the millimetric is more precision ! (ten millimeter = one centimeter)

Re: size of pouch of AMO BELT

Try this http://www.onlineconversion.com/length_common.htm You will have to convert them to decimal points. 3 3/8 = 3.375 inch = 8.5725 centimeter etc. You can convert it to millimeters as well. I agree that our way of measuring can be a lot more confusing than the metric system.
