3. Chapter 4 Mathematics for Plumbers

4. Objectives • Read a rule accurately to nearest 1/16. • Add and subtract fractions and whole numbers. • Compute pipe offsets using the Pythagorean theorem and trigonometric functions. • Apply the formulas for finding area and volume. • Explain and apply SI metric measure in finding length, area, volume, and temperature. • Convert customary measure to metric measure.

5. Measurement (Goodheart-Willcox Publisher)

6. Measurement Reading Fractions of an Inch • Read from nearest 1/4 divisions to get precise reading. (Goodheart-Willcox Publisher)

7. Measurement Adding Lengths (Goodheart-Willcox Publisher)
