How To: Accurately read a tape measurement

Accurately read a tape measurement

In this tutorial, we learn how to accurately read a tape measurement. First, roll out the tape measure, then find the inch marks. These will be in red. From here, you will find the half inch marks between each of the red inches. Half of the half inches will be right in the middle of that, and exactly half of the half! In between this, you will find 3/4 of an inch and 1/8 of an inch. Make sure you have a good view of the lines on the tape measure so you can identify these correctly. The last marks are the 3/8 and the 16th marks.
