Conversion Table
QuikRuler III 33
Scale to convert: 3/16”=1’
Make both sides the same unit of measure (inches): 3/16” = 12”
Multiply both sides by the denominator (16) to eliminate the fraction:
3/16*16 = 12*16
Result: 3 = 192
Divide both sides by the numerator (3) to get the ratio: 3/3 = 192/3 = 64”
Divide the value by the number of inches in a foot (12) to convert the value to feet: 64/12 =
5.33
So, in 3/16” scale, 1 inch is equal to 5.33 feet.
