<<It drives me crazy not knowing the fractional amount on the stocks I own. When the ticker tape appears with something like 15/16th's, 15/32's to a non savvy math person is mind boggling and very frustrating. I can use all the help I can get with this new venture of stock trading.>>

Carol Sue --

I don't know of any list anywhere, but let me show you how to figure it out for yourself, with a calculator. (If you already know this, then forgive my presumption. But perhaps it'll be of use or interest to others, at least.)

For 15/16, or for any number, you take the top number and divide it by the bottom one.

So:

15 / 16 = 0.9375

So 15/16 is the same as \$0.94, if you round the number up to the nearest penny.

1/16 = 0.0625 = 6 cents, rounded down.

33/64 = 0.5156, or 52 cents.

5/8 = 0.625, or 63 cents.

Once you get used to the math, you can create your own chart. :)

Hope that helps!

Selena
