When converting decimals to fractions the result is often rounded to the nearest
fraction
by the calculator. This is due to the divisional limits that the
fraction's denominator places on its numerator.
If the Fraction Result is an exact match to the Inch Decimal then the Result Is box will read "Exact". If the Fraction Result is
rounded to the nearest fraction then the Result Is box will read
"Rounded".
In conversions
where the Fraction Result is rounded,
the higher the Fraction Denominator is, the closer the accuracy of the conversion
will be. |
