Most of us have used a measuring tape at least once in our lives, but not all of us actually know what the numerical markings mean. I’m about to give you the full low-down on how to use your measuring tape.
So, we all know that the larger numbers at the top represent inches and the smaller numbers representing centimeters. The roman numerals in between the numbers often represent the level of accuracy of the measuring tape. The smaller the numerals, the more accurate the tape is. The tapes that don’t have these markings mean they have no level of accuracy.
