There is an "engineering chain" that measures 100 feet, and then there is a "surveying chain" that measures 66 feet. To get inches, simply multiply the applicable chain by 12.

### How do you convert 89 inches to a fraction?

Like all whole numbers put it over 1, to get 89/1 inches.
Perhaps you ought to ask your question with more clarity as to
what you want.
For example, do you mean "How do you convert 89 inches to a
fraction of another unit, for example a chain?"
In which case you find out how many inches are in the other unit
(1 chain = 792 inches) and then use this as the denominator with 89
as the numerator and then simplify the fraction. In this case 89
inches is 89/792 chain.
