Whenever there is a common stock name of the measure of an article it will be given in parentheses after the listing of the actual measurement of that article. For example a piece of wood with the thickness of one and one-half inches and the width of three and one-half inches commonly called a two-by-four. If you ask for an article by its common stock name you will save time and avoid confusion.
