Although you don't specify a fraction of what (inch, foot, meter, etc.), I'm assuming you're wanting the fraction of 1 inch converted to mm.

1" = 25.4 mm exactly, so calculate the fraction to it's decimal equivelent (divide the numerator by the denominator) and multiply by 25.4.

1/2 inch = (1/2) * 25.4 = 0.5 * 25.4 = 12.7 mm
3/8 inch = (3/8) * 25.4 = 0.375 * 25.4 = 9.53 mm
