Jay Matthews import math import fractions def f1(a): x=round(a*16) y=math.modf(x/16) f=int(y[1]//12) i=int(y[1]%12) fr=fractions.Fraction(a[0]) After this, I could not proceed further.

My bad. We use the metric system here in Argentina, so I needed an explanation. Give me a few minutes and I will do my best.

This is a working example. You can fine-tune the output format. If the input can be any arbitrary float, one has to make some assumptions about the acceptable approximation of the result, so I rounded to 2 decimals. https://code.sololearn.com/ck9UTNJFy1ph/?ref=app

I've done it...but...It get kind of ugly unless the number is multiples of 0.25. 34.25 or 34.50 or 34.75 would output as required...but 34.26...oh dear...ugly. What are your expected input? @Fernando Pozzetti as I understand it..I think he/she want:- input = 25.25 (inches) output = 2 feet, 1 and 1/4 inches

Fernando Pozzetti This is not what I am looking for. As rodwynnejones mentioned, if input is, 13.50, the output should be 1-1 1/2.

Nope, I have tried but I can´t sort it out. Anyway, I have never heard the idea of "half a foot". For example, something is said to be "2 feet, 5 inches". We can transform a foot to inches by dividing it by 12. 1 foot = 12 inches. We can do the opposite to get a foot from inches. However, if we do 6 inches, it will be 0.5 feet, defeating the whole purpose of the concept of the imperial system, which is more complicated than our loved metric system. 6 inches is not half a foot, it is SIX INCHES. I don´t know why would you need such a tool either. Lengths are in fractions of an inch, but not in fractions of a foot, because an inch is already a fraction of a foot. However, I wonder what creative ideas this might create.
