Fractional Inches to Decimal Inches to Approximate Millimeters to Practical Millimeters Decimal inches multiplied by 25.4 = approximate mm. N.B. When specifying metric sheet or trim sizes, fractional approximate mm measurements must be rounded off to the nearest whole number; i.e., 50.8 mm is not a practical measurement; it should be rounded up to 51 mm, and 0.5 mm is always rounded down. |

Millimeters to Decimal Inches to Approximate Fractional Inches to Practical Fractional Inches Millimeters divided by 25.4 = decimal inches. N.B. Fractional practical inches have been rounded to the nearest 1/16 inch, which may not always be a practical measurement when specifying sheet or trim sizes in inches. "<" = less than; ">" = greater than |
