Fractions to decimals

Working with both inches and centimeters means converting a lot of fractions to decimals. I have better things to remember than these conversions, so I wrote them out. I didn’t include the obvious ones like 1/4 (.25) or 1/2 (.5) because I know them so well already. Below are the most commonly used fractions I convert into decimals. The fractions are all denominators of 16 (since inches are typically divided that way), and the fractions are rounded to the thousands place.
