Please can someone clarify this?

If a bond is quoted at 108:14 then the price is 108.4375. Can anyone tell me the tick size? Is it 1/32 or still 0.0001? And what is the tick value per $. I thought it was $25 per tick but using that figure in questions gives me the wrong answer! So if the quote went to 108:18 how much would it have gone up by?

When you see a:b, the price is expressed in 1/32 dollar. So 108:14 == $108.4375.

108:14 -> 108:18 is equal to an increase of 4/32 = 0.125 dollar.
