To read a metric measuring tape, find the nearest whole centimeter to the end point. Examine the remaining indicator lines to see how many millimeters are left over. Add those to the whole centimeters, using a decimal. For example, say you measure 20 whole centimeters and there are 6 millimeter marks left over.
The metric system is usually the bottom row and will contain smaller numbers, while the imperial system is usually the top row and contains larger numbers. For extra confirmation, you can also check for letter labels that say “cm” or “meter”/“m” since those are metric measurements.
A magnetic tape drive is a storage device that makes use of magnetic tape as a medium for storage. It uses a long strip of narrow plastic film with tapes of thin magnetizable coating.
