### 1/4" is the same as 2/8.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because both 1/4 and 2/8 represent the same fraction, which is one-fourth. When we simplify 2/8, we can divide both the numerator and denominator by 2 to get 1/4. Therefore, 1/4 is indeed the same as 2/8.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### 5/8" is the same as 10/16".

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because both 5/8" and 10/16" represent the same fraction. By simplifying 10/16", we can divide both the numerator and denominator by 2 to get 5/8". Therefore, 5/8" is indeed equivalent to 10/16".

Rate this question:

• 3.

### 16/16" is the same as 2"

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "16/16" is the same as "2" is false. When we simplify the fraction 16/16, we can divide both the numerator and denominator by 16, resulting in 1/1. Therefore, 16/16 is equal to 1, not 2.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### 1-5/8" is the same as 11/8"

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because 1-5/8" is not the same as 11/8". 1-5/8" is a mixed number, which means it represents a whole number (1) and a fraction (5/8). On the other hand, 11/8" is an improper fraction, which means the numerator (11) is greater than the denominator (8). Therefore, these two measurements are not equal.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### There are 4, 16ths in a quarter inch.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
There are 4, 16ths in a quarter inch because a quarter inch can be divided into 16 equal parts, and each of these parts is called a 16th. Therefore, there are 4 of these 16ths in a quarter inch.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### How man sixteenths in 9/16" over a half inch?

one, 1
Explanation
There is one sixteenth in 9/16" over a half inch. This can be determined by dividing the total length of 9/16" by the length of a sixteenth, which is equal to 1/16". Since 9 divided by 1 is equal to 9, it means that there are 9 sixteenths in 9/16". However, the question specifically asks for the number of sixteenths over a half inch, which is equal to 8 sixteenths. Therefore, the correct answer is one, or 1.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### How many sixteenths are in One quarter of an inch?

4, four
Explanation
One quarter of an inch is equal to 4 sixteenths. This is because there are 16 sixteenths in one inch, so dividing one inch into four equal parts gives us 4 sixteenths in each quarter. Therefore, one quarter of an inch is equal to 4 sixteenths.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### How many eighths are in an inch?

8, eight
Explanation
There are 8 eighths in an inch because an inch can be divided into 8 equal parts, each part being one eighth of an inch. Therefore, when measuring or dividing something in inches, it is possible to have 8 eighths in total.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### How many sixteenths are in 3/8 of an inch?

6, six
Explanation
To find out how many sixteenths are in 3/8 of an inch, we need to determine how many sixteenths make up 3/8. Since there are 16 sixteenths in one whole, we can divide 3/8 by 1/16 to find the answer. When we divide 3 by 1, we get 3. And when we divide 8 by 16, we get 1/2. Therefore, 3/8 is equal to 3/2 sixteenths, which simplifies to 6 sixteenths.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### The decimal for 9/16 is _________

.562
Explanation
The decimal for 9/16 is .562 because when you divide 9 by 16, you get 0.5625. However, since the question asks for the decimal, you round down to the nearest thousandth, which is .562.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### The decimal for 1/16 is ___________

.062
Explanation
The decimal for 1/16 is .062 because when we divide 1 by 16, we get a quotient of 0.0625. Since the question asks for the decimal, we round the quotient to the nearest thousandth, which is .062.
