Grab a measuring device (for example,a school ruler), examine it carefully. You'll see

**division**- some more, others less. Division can be of different colors, some of them signed. At a school meeting, for example, a signed first division - one centimeter.2

Make a note the period before the first signed

**division**. Count the number of small divisions in this segment (for example, at a school meeting in the interval, equal to one centimeter is ten small divisions and two additional**dividing**average value).3

Determine

**the price**of the smallest**division**. To do this, divide the signed value of the first**division**for a number of small divisions within this segment. At a school meeting, for example, one centimeter should be divided into ten divisions. Get one millimeter. So the price of a small**division**on the school line is equal to one millimeter.4

Now define

**the price**of minor tick marks, if they are on the measuring instrument. For example, at a school meeting, two additional**division**in one centimetre. Therefore, we need one centimeter divided into two**division**- will be five millimeters. So the price of a additional**division**on the ruler is millimeter.Note

Don't forget that counting division signed division is also necessary to take into account.
