NO!

It is not .100 thousandths...
It is 100 thousands! Those decimals are important!

.100 thousandths, Now that is tiny!

0.1 is the same as 0.10, and the same as 0.100, and the same as 0.1000 and the same as 0.100000000000 - still one tenth.

It can also be called 100/1000 or one hundred thousandths; or 10/100 or ten hundredths.

Or about a saw cut width, or a light eighth. Or even .254 centimeters. Or 1.578283e-006 miles.

Here is a good free download that will do the math for you...

The only difference between .1, .10, .100, .1000 is the degree of implied accuracy. Do you measure it with a ruler or a micrometer?

.10 = 10/100 as implied by the number of digits.
.100 = 100/1000 as implied by the number of digits.

Know that feeling. Dad always said he was an SI - that meant Sivil Ingineer.

Most of them that I worked with had no personality, let alone a sense of humor.

One that did have a sense of humor told me mechanical engineers build weapons, civil engineers build targets.
