Darrell, I'm lost. Why and when would we do this?

You're right. This is really useful information. Thanks for posting. I've put it away in my tips and tricks file.

Hi Barb,

in Canada, we use the metric system.  So we seldom use fractions. although I'm from the old school before metric was introduced and I still like to use inches and fractions. I can instantly visualize how long a window covering measurement of 80 1/4" is. the conversion to metric is 200.63 cm.

I like having my tire pressure 32 pounds per square inch.  I have no idea how many kpa kilo pascals that is.
