Pay more attention in class,they showed you all this in class,but on a typical tape measure, count the number of lines between a inch mark,then do a bit of math and figure it out!

There are certain skills you need to get by in life,reading a measuring tape is one of them,along with how to check your oil in a car,how to change a tire,and a good understanding of math! I'm not trying to pick at you,or make crap of you either,instead of being a smart ass,try to listen to people that have been in the world and know what it takes to get by,and make a living,support a family and own things too,a ruler is divided into inches. Inches are split into,halves,quarters,eights,and sixteenths, that's how you read a ruler. That make it any easier? If you can't figure that out,you in deep trouble,make sure you get along with your parents real good, cuz that's were you will be living for a very long time!
