Decimal to Fractions

Last Modified: 2013-12-20
I got an equation that will return numbers with a lot of decimal places. I would like for the user to see something that they can measure out with a tape measure so I would like it to round the the nearest 1/16th.

This is what I get: 38.5624897
This is what I want : 3'-2-9/16"

This is all in a textbox.
