3/8 inches is strictly equal to 3/8 inches

By calculation (generator: ["base_unit_equivalent5@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

3/8 inches is the base unit equivalent of 3/8 inches

3/8 inches is the base unit equivalent of 3/8 inches

By calculation (generator: ["second_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

inch is the second parameter of 3/8 inches

inch is the second parameter of 3/8 inches

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

Fact 1: inch is a US customary unit ([fact: ["134510928@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1: inch is a US customary unit ([fact: ["134510928@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1
is true for
January 13th 2009 onwards
([fact: ["702162816@trueknowledge.com"]])

US customary unit
is a subclass of
scalar unit

Fact 2: inch is a scalar unit

Fact 2: inch is a scalar unit

Fact 2
is true for
January 13th 2009 onwards

By calculation (generator: ["unit_used_in@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

inch is the unit used in 3/8 inches

inch is the unit used in 3/8 inches

By calculation (generator: ["second_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

inch is the second parameter of 1/2 inches

Fact 3 is true at August 29th 2014, 16:17:17

By calculation (generator: ["first_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1/2 is the first parameter of 1/2 inches

1/2 is the first parameter of 1/2 inches

By calculation (generator: ["product@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1/2 is the product of 1 and 1/2

1/2 is the product of 1 and 1/2

By calculation (generator: ["class_parametered_object@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

length is the class of the parametered object 1/2 inches

length is the class of the parametered object 1/2 inches

By calculation (generator: ["parametered_object_corresponding_to@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1/2 inches is the parametered object corresponding to length and 1/2 and inch

1/2 inches is the parametered object corresponding to length and 1/2 and inch

By calculation (generator: ["equivalent_to6@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 4: 1/2 inches is equivalent to 1/2 inches

Fact 4: 1/2 inches is equivalent to 1/2 inches

Fact 4
is true at
August 29th 2014, 16:17:17

Fact 4:
inch
is the unit used in
1/2 inches

By calculation (generator: ["numeric_greater_than@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1/2 is greater than 3/8

1/2 is greater than 3/8

Therefore (generator: ["numeric_greater_than@trueknowledge.com"]):

1/2 is not less than 3/8

1/2 is not less than 3/8

1/2
is not the same as
3/8

By calculation (generator: ["scalar_greater@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 5: 1/2 inches is greater than 3/8 inches

Fact 5: 1/2 inches is greater than 3/8 inches

By calculation (generator: ["perm5@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 5 is true for all time

Fact 5 is true for all time

By calculation (generator: ["timeperiodtopoint@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 5 is true at August 29th 2014, 16:17:17

Fact 5 is true at August 29th 2014, 16:17:17

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

permanent applies to is greater than ([fact: ["1156571@trueknowledge.com"]])

permanent applies to is greater than ([fact: ["1156571@trueknowledge.com"]])

I used the following facts to provide this answer:

inch has been a US customary unit since at least January 13th 2009

US customary unit is a subclass of scalar unit

1 has always been the multiplier that converts inch and inch and will be forever
