In this video you will learn how to use a Measuring Tape.
A measuring tape is a flexible ruler rolled up into a handheld dispenser. It displays linear measurements marked on a retractable strip of tape.
To use a Measuring Tape first hook the grab onto one end of the measured object. Here it is a wall.
Pull the roll along the length of the measured surface.
Make sure that the tape is aligned with the wall or the surface you are attempting to measure.
Make a note of the measurement in the required unit.
When making a note of the measurement make sure that you are standing right above the point that you are marking.
You have now learned to use a measuring tape.
