Default Replacement Casement windows - how to measure?

I own a rental property that has several combination type windows, ie picture window with a casements on each side. The picture windows are in good shape but the casements are shot. I would like to replace them with double hung replacement windows. I have replaced windows before but never casements. I am not quite sure on how to measure the opening for a replacement casement window. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated

Welcome Steve:
Take the inside trim off and measure the whole size of the window (width first, then height), take the measurements to a building supplier who should have a professional who can size them for you.

Glenn:

Thanks for response. I have enclosed two pictures showing both sides of the window. In my picture I am assuming that parts B & C are removed and I will be measuring between parts A, at least for width. Would you agree? Thanks again,

Steve

Hello Steve:
You would need to remove A and the back side of B is where you measure. Also take off the stool and aporn to measure the height. In window measurements the width is always first.
