dECIMAL INCH

I DON'T HAVE A CELL PHONE. I AM STILL RUNNING PROGRAMS BASED ON dos BECAUSE NEWER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER. I CAN LOOK AT THE SIDE OF THE TAPE CALIBRATED IN 100TH OF A INCH AND LOOK AT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TAPE AND EYEBALL IT TO THE NEAREST 64TH WITHOUT A CALCULATOR OR CELL PHONE. I CAN DO THE MATH LONG HAND WITH PAPER AND PENCIL. I DO HAVE A LITTLE PROBLEM DOING DECIMAL EQUILIVANTS OF 5/64THS IN MY HEAD TO NEAREST 100TH WHEN I CAN DO IT READILY BY JUST LOOKING AT THE EDGES OF THE TAPE.
