Quandaries and Queries


Hello it's been a while since i left high school, and everything is now confusing.
You know they say 14mm = 9/16" or something of that nature, i need to know exactly how this is done.

Thanks in advance.



Hi Ron,

By the current definition,

one inch equals 2.54 centimeters,

which equals 25.4 millimeters. Thus 9/16 of an inch equals (9/16) (25.4) = 14.2875 millimeters, which rounds to about 14 mm.
