The service section of a ground equipment maintenance support company
organization contains a machine shop for support of the company's repair
shop elements and supported units.
This support consists of refurbishing
repair parts, and designing and fabricating jigs, fixtures, and special
tools, through the use of a lathe, shaper, and/or milling machine.
machines provide machine shop personnel with the capability for fabricating
component parts with the correct dimensions and with tolerances down to
thousands of an inch clearance between moving parts, allowing their
Determining these dimensions and close tolerances, requires the performance
of certain mathematical calculations involving a knowledge of how to solve
Subsequent paragraphs, therefore, describe the processes
involved in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions.
Before delving into fractions, a review of the
