Converting feet (in decimals, transit output) into English Ft.-inches
Posted by Wyg on September 10, 2000 6:34 PM
The measuring stick of a surveying transit for (landscape) grading of ground is measured in "decimal" units of feet, inches 0-9, tenths of an inch.
Example 5,3,6 is 5 ft., 3 inches, 6/10ths of an inch.
Is there a formula or a lookup table for easy calculation into English units of ft-in-1/16"?
Also is there a formula for calculating the differences between such numbers -- either within the decimal or within the English format?
I have dozens of such decimal readings to convert and subtract.
Thanks for any help.
