I need to buy part hose for an old washing machine. I setup top just buysome plastic tubing called Dairy water tap (used for cow milking machines). Iam virtually helpless as soon as it pertains to math. The original hose is noted as .875 inch ID.But the dairy hose is offered as a fraction, such as 3/4". (I understand 3/4" is.750). What is .875 as a fraction? (I"m guessing about 7/8", yet that"s simply a guess). Many thanks for every help.

You are watching: .875 inches on a ruler

Pretty good guess. .875 is precisely 7/8. However, be careful withinside vs. External diameter. Hoses and also pipe intended because that differentpurposes regularly measured in various incompatible ways.
To carry out fractions, put your value over 1, and divide or multiplyboth top and bottom by the very same number until you have actually the lowest wholenumber possible. .875/1.000divide both by 5 .175/.200divide both through 5 .35/.40 division both through 5.7/.8 Can"t be divided any type of further, main point by 10 7/8<>"s(I"m a terrible teacher)
Your an approach works just fine however all the OP would certainly have had to have doneis get in .975 into a Google search. First hit claimed 7/8ths
Or due to the fact that he assumed it was around 7/8, simply divide 7 through 8.In this situation it"s exact. If that wasn"t then try 13/16 or 15/16,etc. Till you have it close enough for what girlfriend need.
Google provided me 39/40. I could have excellent it much faster in my head through takingthe complement: .025. Ah, 1/40, for this reason .975 is 39/40. The same method works through .875.
So come fractionate .875, I"d go into .975? I have so lot to learn. -.Christopher A. Younglearn much more about Jesus.
My workstation doesn"t to the right in my pocket. Yet : My cabinet phone has actually a cost-free app called "CalcMadeEasy" the is nearly asgood as the TI. Man
