Default Help with toe settings degrees to inches

My car is a 99 10ae. Got an alignment and wanted 1/32in. in toe per side on the rear and 0 toe up front. The hunter machine used read in degrees only so I had the guy set the toe to fac. specs. This came out to be 0.15 deg. per side. I've come to find this works out to 1/16 per side. Can someone tell me for sure what 1/32 works out to be in degrees and what 0 up front would come out to, thanks

I had the same hassle when I went to get mine aligned, the shop only had degrees and lanny/Miq/Icehawk settings are mostly in inches.
I did convert the settings though and have em around here somewhere....
It would be nice to have a post of the above alignments in both inches and degrees tho.
1/32 inch (0°4.5' or 0.075°)

I asked for 1/16" out up front and 1/32" in in the rear, and I got -.06 up front and .04 in the rear.
