Lecture 41 - Page 2 of 11 Example 1 GIVEN : All road construction projects in New York State have drawings with metric measurements. All metric drawings always use units of mm for everything. (Reminder: 1 m = 1000 mm) REQUIRED : Convert 1500 mm as shown on the drawings into feet/inch/sixteenths. Use the conversion 1 inch = 25.4 mm Number of inches = inch per mm mm _ _ 4 . 25 1500 = 59.055118 inches = 48” + 11.055118” = 4’ + 11.055118” = 4’ + 11” + (0.055118 x 16 th ) = 4’ + 11” + ths 16 88 . 0
