1           IF YOU WANT TO KNOW...HOW LONG A LINE IS.
PLACE A RULER, NEXT TO THE LINE, YOU WANT TO KNOW, THE SIZE OF,
AND THE NUMBERS, ON THE RULER,  WILL TELL YOU,  HOW LONG THAT LINE IS.
   
THE LITTLE LETTERS, cm AFTER THE NUMBERS,
TELL YOU, THAT THE RED LINES, ARE SPACED, EXACTLY, 1 CENTI-METER APART.
A CENTIMETER, IS EXACTLY 1/100 OF A METER
THERE ARE ALWAYS, 10 SPACES,  BETWEEN THE RED CENTIMETER LINES,
THESE LITTLE SPACES, ARE CALLED, MILLI-METERS,
BECAUSE, MILLIMETER MEANS, THEY ARE 1/1000 OF A METER WIDE .
MILLIMETER IS ABBREVIATED, WITH THE LITTLE LETTERS mm.
THE LITTLE MILLIMETER LINES, ARE IMPORTANT,
WHEN OBJECTS, ARE A LITTLE LARGER THAN  ONE OF THE CENTIMETER NUMBERS,
OR WHEN, WE WANT TO MEASURE, VERY SMALL OBJECTS.
2           FOR EXAMPLE,
             IF YOU WANT TO TELL THE JEWELER, THE SIZE OF THE RING,
YOU WANT TO BUY, FOR YOUR FIANCE.
PLACE THE RING, HALF WAY OVER A RULER,
OR A ROLLED UP RULER, CALLED, A TAPE MEASURE.
THEN COUNT, THE AMOUNT, OF SMALL MILLIMETER SPACES,
INSIDE THE HOLE IN THE RING...
HOW LARGE, IS THIS YOUNG LADY'S RING TO BE ?
IF YOU SAID...16 MILLIMETERS..YOU COUNTED THEM CORRECTLY.

3               IF YOU WANT TO TELL, A PRINTER MAN,
    THE SIZE, OF THE SPECIAL, NAME CARDS,
    YOU  WANT TO HAVE PRINTED, WITH YOUR NAMES ON THEM,
    YOU  PLACE THE RULER, NEXT TO THE LONG SIDE, OF THE CARD,
    PARALLEL TO THE DIRECTION,
    THAT YOU WANT THE NAMES, TO BE PRINTED.
    AND IT WILL TELL YOU, EXACTLY HOW WIDE,THE CARD YOU CHOSE IS.   
    THE WIDTH, IS ALWAYS THE DIRECTION, THAT IS PARALLEL, TO THE WORDS OR TEXT.
4           TO TELL THEM, THE OTHER DIRECTION,
TURN THE CARD PERPENDICULAR TO THE RULER, 
WHEN YOU WRITE, THE SIZE OF THE CARD, YOU WANT,
WRITE THE WIDTH  & THEN THE HEIGHT IN THIS WAY    WxH = 9cm x 5cm

5           IF THE PRINTER MAN, WANTS TO KNOW,  HOW LONG YOUR NAMES ARE BE, 
TAKE THE RULER, AND MEASURE, HOW LONG THE NAMES ARE TO BE.
THEN TELL THE PRINTER,

6           IF YOU WANT TO CUT A PIECE PAPER TO MAKE A SIGN W-28cm x H-15cm 
YOU TAKE A 30cm RULER AND MARK THE SIZES
AT TWO PLACES AND DRAW A LINE, BETWEEN THEM, AS SHOWN BELOW.
    
AFTER, YOU HAVE DRAWN, BOTH THE LINES,
     THEN YOU, CUT OVER THE LINE, WITH A SCISSORS OR A MATTE KNIFE.


7           WHEN, WE HAVE TO MEASURE OBJECTS, THAT ARE VERY BIG,
WE HAVE TO USE, A ROLLED UP RULER, CALLED A TAPE MEASURE.
THE NUMBERS, ON MANY TAPE MEASURES, ARE WRITTEN, DIFFERENTLY,
AS SHOWN, IN THE ILLUSTRATION BELOW.
THEREFORE, WHEN YOU WANT TO MEASURE, SOMETHING,
THAT IS NOT EXACTLY,  AN EXACT WHOLE TEN CENTIMETER NUMBER,
YOU HAVE TO DO SOME..EXTRA THINKING,  FOR EXAMPLE,
8                  IF YOU HAVE TO, CUT A BOARD, FOR A WOODEN TABLE, 144 CENTIMETERS LONG,
YOU HAVE TO FIND, THE NEAREST, WHOLE TEN CENTIMETER NUMBER, TO 144cm
WHICH IS 140cm & THEN YOU MUST COUNT OVER, TO THE 4cm MARK....ON THE TAPE MEASURE.


9          THEN YOU,  DRAW ONE LINE,  ON THE BOARD,  AT 144cm  &  ONE LINE, 2mm TO THE RIGHT.
2mm TO THE RIGHT  IS EXACTLY TWO, OF THE TEN SMALL LINES,
THAT ARE BETWEEN,  EACH OF THE CENTIMETER NUMBERS,
 AND THEN YOU CUT BETWEEN THOSE TWO LINES.
10                                       EACH OF THOSE TEN LINES, BETWEEN,THE CENTIMETER NUMBERS,
     ARE ALSO CALLED TENTHS,  AND ARE WRITTEN AS FOLLOWS,
THE 1 TENTH LINE  = 1/10 LINE = .1 LINE,
THE 2 TENTHS LINE = 2/10 LINE = .2 LINE
THE 3 TENTHS LINE = 3/10 LINE = .3 LINE,
THE 4 TENTHS LINE = 4/10 LINE = .4 LINE,
THE 5 TENTHS LINE = 5/10 LINE = .5 LINE = and A HALF
THE 6 TENTHS LINE = 6/10 LINE = .6 LINE,
THE 7 TENTHS LINE = 7/10 LINE = .7 LINE
THE 8TENTHS LINE = 8/10 LINE = .8 LINE
THE 9 TENTHS LINE = 9/10 LINE = .9 LINE
WE MARKED A SECOND LINE, AT ONE HUNDRED FOURTY FOUR & TWO TENTHS ( 144.2 cm )
IS AN EXAMPLE ,OF HOW A DIMENSION, WITH TENTHS IS DESCRIBED.

11         WHEN OBJECTS ARE VERY LONG & HAVE THICKNESS
      THE WORD...THE LENGTH  ( PRONOUNCED LEN-TH )   IS NORMALLY USED,
      TO INDICATE, THE LONGER DIMENSION, INSTEAD OF THE WIDTH.   ( WI-TH )
      THEREFORE,  
      A SHELF and A WOODEN BEAM,  HAVE A LENGTH, A WIDTH and A HEIGHT.   ( HAI-T )
    
     IF YOU WANT, TO BUY, THIS TYPE OF SHELF, FOR YOUR BOOKS,
    YOU MUST TELL, THE LUMBERMAN, THE LENGTH, THE WIDTH and THE HEIGHT
    IN THIS WAY..  L=200cm, W=30cm, H=2cm,  WHITE PINE,  PREFINISHED or UNFINISHED

 12       IF YOU WANT A BEAM, TO SUPPORT, THE ROOF BEAMS OF A SMALL SHED.
TELL THE LUMBERMAN,   
NOW YOU KNOW,
HOW TO MEASURE, THE LENGTH & WIDTH & THICKNESS OR HEIGHT OF OBJECTS.
YOU NOW CAN LEARN,  HOW TO MEASURE THE SIZE OR...AREA OF SURFACES,
SUCH AS:  THE AREA OF WALLS, THAT NEED TO BE PAINTED,
        THE AREA OF FLOORS, THAT NEED TO BE TILED.
        THE AMOUNT OF CLOTH, NEEDED TO MAKE A BLANKET.
BECAUSE, YOU CANNOT GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL, OR ENTER UNIVERSITY
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, HOW TO FIND THE AREA, OF SIMPLE WORK SURFACES,
         IN ANY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD...
