Im a little embarassed to ask this but i googled it and didn't find much help. Im working on Ohms law and calculations. The book im working in coverts 80' to .080.. Does that mean 800' would be .800 and 8' would be .008?

.080, .800 and .008 what? Gallons? Dollars? Grams? Degrees? MPG? FootPounds? Lumens? Acres? Cubic Liters? BTU?

He was joking chas. One of the things is a number with a unit (800 feet). The other is just a number(.800). There is no way to convert between the two .800 could be .800 feet or .800 light years.

I try to be a clown but not in this case. His book already gave the relationship of 80' equaling .080

I agree.
Given that he is working on Ohms Law issues, most likely it is in relation to wire resistance, which is usually expressed on ohms per thousand feet. So if one has 80 feet of wire, you would multiply the ohms/k' by .080.
